Found in Central Africa, the Democratic Republic of the Congo is a country troubled by its history of war and violence that in some way severely affected its cost-effective and social position right at this moment. This large African country, despite having a history of struggles, is a minefield of natural beauty and amazing adventure that can just be experienced when one is willing to look past the population's poverty and the country's brutal history.
Tourists who visit the capital can visit several of the prehistoric and ethnological museums that can be seen at the Kinshasa University. Neverheless, this is not to say that you will not have a good time taking in the sights that the Democratic Republic of the Congo can offer. The National Museum is in addition a great stop for tourists who are interested in the arts history of the country.
As Africa is blamed for its majestic wildlife reserve, it's a must to travel to the Upemba National Park which incorporates several water sources that are home to hippos and crocodiles. Another wildlife reserve that can be included in a traveler's itinerary is the Virunga National Park. This sprawling 12,000 square kilometer reserve is boxed in by two mountain ranges that typically serves as an enclosure for the numerous animals that live and thrive in the area. Here, lions, elephants, buffaloes, antelopes and even aquatic birds roam freely.
Although the country is actually associated with the heat and dry spell, exciting waterfalls can be seen in the southern part of the country such as the Kiobo and Lofol waterfalls.
The Republic of the Congo may have a long way to go before it moves into true economic and tourism progress. But neglectless, traveling to this country is a valuable, moving experience even without all the luxury and fanciness of a dream vacation.
