Why travel to Democratic Republic Of Congo (DRC)?

In light of its geographic immensity, the climate is extremely varied. While the temperature is moderately high all year round given its location the country is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean, the trade winds of the Indian Ocean and the equatorial zone and that of the mountainous regions of the east. It can get cold there, especially in the evening at the top of the Nyiragongo volcano or Rwenzori. Travelers are sometimes surprised to learn that there is eternal snow on top of Rwenzori straddling the DRC and Uganda.

Another of the riches of the Congolese people lies in the physical, linguistic and cultural diversity of its inhabitants. The Pygmies are considered to be the oldest settlements there.

Commitment to sustainable tourism

This country is paradoxically rich with the majority of its population classified among the poorest in the world. Tourism is still underdeveloped there and is believed to be a key sector in job creation and economic development.
