The first part of the trip will focus on the ethnographic and colonial aspects of the Democratic Republic of the Congo by exploring Kinshasa and remote Mbandaka on the banks of the mighty Congo River. Here we will discover groups of traditional pygmies and the Ekonda, one of the most conservative and fascinating tribes in the Congolese jungle.
The second part focuses on one of the ancient kingdoms of the DR Congo. We will visit the kingdom of Yaka, being received by its king.

The guide of the trip will be Aníbal Bueno, an ethno-photographer expert in Central African societies. More information about the guide.
