Spirits of the forest: Congo's gorillas
A vast, uncharted wilderness, Africa’s ‘Heart of Darkness’ once drew Victorian explorers in search of seemingly mythical creatures. Follow in their footsteps with a gorilla-tracking safari in the Congo Basin’s rainforests. Here is one man's story, originally from Lonely Planet Traveller magazine.

A tale of two cities: Brazzaville and Pointe-Noire
Pleasant is not a word one uses often in the humid and dusty urban areas of central Africa, even more so in a capital city, but it describes Brazzaville quite well. The city can be a welcome relief after hard overland travel in the region, or for regaining one's senses after crossing the Congo River from Kinshasa. Having been the capital of ‘Free France’ for a number of years in the World War II, the city owes a lot to the habits and attitudes of France. It is laid back and easily walkable, with numerous tree-lined streets, quaint pavement cafes and restaurants.

Congo wildlife: closer than ever
The best opportunities for wildlife remain in the north of the Congo. With a decent highway now connecting Brazzaville to Cameroon, as well as numerous internal flights, it's not too difficult to reach the jungle in this region. For the more intrepid, the northeast offers a unique opportunity to experience wetlands along the western bank of the Congo River in the region of Impfondo. Rumours persist of Mokele-Mbembe, the Congo dinosaur, inhabiting this vast swampy region and several expeditions over the years have aimed to seek it out (no luck to date).
