Adventure into the heart of Africa Travel to the DRC
A destination for pioneering travellers, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), offers something truly remarkable for the avid explorer. A complicated region with a huge amount to offer, exploring the eastern edge offers explorers a real life glimpse into the heart of Africa.
Diverse to its core, DRC is knitted together in a vast array of dense jungles, volcanic peaks, raging rivers and open savannah pains. Home to the oldest national park on the African continent (Albert National Park, now Virunga National Park), DRC is one of the last bastions of ‘real Africa’, putting the modern day explorer through their paces.

The diversity of this region comes in many shapes and sizes from being home to the only surviving population of Eastern Lowland Gorillas, approximately a quarter of the population of the world’s mountain gorillas, wild chimpanzees, forest elephants, volcanic lava lakes and even savannah game (in the more northern reaches of the park in Lulimbi).
