The Democratic Republic of the Congo, straddling the equator and bordering no less than nine countries, is more of a destination for the hardened tourist than visitors who want to travel from point A to point B in a straight line. That doesn’t mean this erstwhile war-torn country should be discarded as a worthwhile African safari destination, on the contrary. Although the DRC comes with a travel warning, it is the perfect destination for those who seek adventure. The vast landscape, with a size that is larger than Sweden, Norway, Germany, France, and Spain combined, is dissected by the mighty Congo River that ends in the Atlantic Ocean and is dominated by tropical rainforest, the second largest in the world. A small parcel of land is covered by savannah and grassland.
