Nature, ethnicity and colonial heritage

A quiet contrast to its giant neighbor, the Republic of Congo is a good destination for nature and for living with indigenous jungle peoples such as the Babongo Pygmies near the Atlantic coast, the Baka Pygmies from the north and the Vili Bantu of the Kouilou River. Safe and quiet country allows the traveler to explore Brazzaville, its mythical rue de la Joie with its elegant and picturesque 'dandies', the Sapeurs de Brazza (more classic than its Kinshasa neighbors) and drive to Dolisié, a small railway town standing still in time. with interesting colonial French buildings to immerse ourselves in the jungle mountains of Mayombe and reach the sea, where the vibrant Pointe Noire is located. From the oil capital we can explore the Kingdom of Loango, one of the main slavery centers on the African Atlantic coast, and the mysterious Kouilou River and reach Kakamoeka, refuge of the Babongo pygmies, one of the oldest peoples in Africa.
