Every country has a story to tell. The Musée Ethnograhique Barthélémy Boganda in Bangui holds the country’s history in the depths of its bosom. This national museum has a humble collection of local instruments, weapons, tools, displays about local traditions, religion, and architecture. The country’s history also lies in the prehistoric rock paintings that can be found in several locations, with Bambari being the most notable location. Remnants of the ancient peoples of the Central African Republic include megaliths positioned in concentric circles found near the town of Bouar.
The Central African Republic is located in the Congo Basin, which is the second largest block of tropical forests in the world after the Amazon. With an area of approximately 200 million hectares, the Congo Basin harbors unique flora and fauna. For a chance to simply revel in the country’s natural beauty, the “Chutes de Boali”, are an impressive series of waterfalls, which are especially spectacular during the rainy season. Explore the country’s rainforests which offer a diverse arrangement of flora and fauna. After a full day of exploration, treat yourself to creative and unique crafts which can be found at the local markets. After one trip to the market, you will be able to say you are the proud owner of special art that can only be found in the Central African Republic

Why travel to Central African Republic?

The Central African Republic is one of the least known and least affected by tourism destinations in Africa. However, it shelters a diversity of very dense landscapes. The vast majority of the Central African Republic’s landscape is unused, leaving the country in its original authenticity.
Its exceptionally rich biodiversity includes many rare and endemic species. The star of Central African Republic is the Dzanga-Sangha National Park. Here, you will be exposed to a large population of forest elephants and western lowland gorillas. In the north, at the Manovo-Gounda St Floris National Park you will also find leopards, lions, cheetahs and rhinos.
The best time to explore the country is the dry season, from November to April. Temperatures range from 18 ° C for the coolest in December to 34 ° C for the hottest in February.

Commitment to sustainable tourism

Despite all the challenges, the Central African Republic takes part in certain actions to develop sustainable tourism. It promotes ecotourism and creates economic opportunities for its community. Some tourism players also set up anti-poaching surveillance, the habituation of gorillas to human life, ecotourism and ecological monitoring. Although this is a concrete example of sustainable development, the project operates in an uncertain socio-political context. Even if these actions are on the right track for long-term financial stability, an essential step in the long-term protection of these landscapes, and the preservation of forests, it is important that all populations can understand the benefits and adhere to them.
