Why are holidays to Republic of Congo Expensive?

Exploring untamed Congo is an authentic wilderness experience. The Republic of Congo is one of the last three remaining countries in central Africa where you can trek the western lowland gorillas in the wild. It’s a truly untouched frontier and of the best eco-tourism destinations in Africa. Congo’s rainforest is the largest in Africa, boasting chimpanzees, lowland gorillas and forest elephants. The local, friendly people love welcoming foreign visitors to their country. But its main attraction is its wilderness with some of the world’s largest forest covers extremely undiscovered – beckoning visitors to experience Africa in all its raw, natural beauty. Come explore the Congo!

Due to the country’s location, there are extremely few visitors travelling to the Republic of Congo making it slightly pricy for those looking to venture into this exceptional ecosystem

Budget safaris are still very difficult to operate in this region due to the inaccessibility of the roads making it only possible by charter flights from the main capital Brazzaville to Odzala Kokoua national park which is the country’s most prominent tourist destination famous for gorilla trekking in Africa.
