Congo road trip

Cross the land border

It is always a real adventure to cross the land borders. From the Angolan enclave of Cabinda, you cross the land border to the Republic of Congo. There you will be welcomed by our reliable and long-standing partner. You travel with one of the most respected tour operators in the country and can rely on a smooth process. Immerse yourself in this impressive country and embark on a unique road trip.


Pointe Noire, nestled along the Atlantic coast, beckons with its pristine beaches and rich history, offering a glimpse into the transatlantic slave trade at the UNESCO-listed Gorges of Diosso. In contrast, vibrant Brazzaville, the capital, boasts iconic landmarks like Nabemba Tower and St Anne Basilica. A city tour reveals the dynamic energy of Poto-Poto School of Painting, and a visit to Lesio Luna Natural Reserve offers a unique chance to encounter gorillas in their natural habitat, creating an unforgettable experience for every traveler.

Observe the gorillas

Get up close to African wildlife and observe the world-famous Congo gorillas. Our experienced partner will bring you as close as possible to these impressive animals, but at a safe distance so as not to put you in danger.

Lesio Luna Natural Reserve, a haven in Congo Brazzaville, invites tourists to an immersive journey where they can witness the majestic beauty of African wildlife, thousands of vibrant bird species, and, in a rare encounter, come face to face with the largest group of wild gorillas in Africa amidst the lush and unspoiled landscapes.

Go on a boat trip on the Congo River, formerly called the Zaire River, and get a new perspective from the water on one of Africa’s longest rivers. Attend a Kintengue Traditional dance performance with us and immerse yourself further in the cultural diversity of this country.
