After a first survey in 2018, Last Places has seen the great potential of the Democratic Republic of the Congo for those travelers looking for those last places on the Planet. The trip is divided into 2 parts:

The first part of the trip will focus on ethnographic and colonial aspects of the Congo exploring Kinshasa and the remote Mbandaka on the shores of the mighty Congo River. Here we will discover traditional pygmy groups and the Ekonda, one of the most conservative and fascinating tribes in the Congolese jungle.

The second part focuses on one of DR Congo’s ancient kingdoms. We will fly to Kassai Province to meet the descendants of the Kuba Emperor and admire the unique Bakuba art and music.
