Known as the heart of Africa, the Congos are one of the last bastions in Africa for the seriously adventurous traveler. Both countries remain difficult to visit especially when traveling overland. This revised guide tells you how to travel both adventurously and safely and includes an extensive chapter on security. It provides the intrepid traveler with practical information and the unique maps you will need to explore this jungle territory. City maps have been updated with the latest information on where to find hotels, restaurants and shops. The road network has been repaired and travelers can now travel easily by minibus throughout some regions of these countries. Overland routes are much improved and regional maps are completely revised to show the updated infrastructure.The Congos encompass Africa's largest area of intact rainforest and much of the book is devoted to the spectacular wildlife in both countries. Two eastern national parks, both World Heritage Sites, protect not only the mountain gorilla but the critically endangered eastern lowland gorilla and information on tour groups visiting these sites and many others is included in the guide. Providing practical information on every region of both countries, essential advice on preparation as well as safety precautions, this is the only comprehensive guide to both Congos in English.
