Itinerary


Day 1: Arrival and Welcome

Welcome to Brazzaville, our representative will greet you at the airport, and courteously assist you to your hotel. After you comfortably check-in, decide on a fantastic evening tour with popular musicians and bar/cafe spots, or just enjoy a rest and refreshment after a briefing from the local guide. 

Day 2: Brazzaville City Tour - Tank Graveyard & River-View Dinner

Kick of your day tour of Brazzaville with city sightseeing, a tank graveyard visit (if open), and traditional Congolese food. Over the course of the day you will see all of the main monuments and if requested, artist collectives and art schools. In the evening enjoy dinner at a river-side restaurant overlooking Kinshasa, and the river traffic of the two capitals. Overnight at Brazzaville tourist hotel.

Day 3: Congo River Cruising & Exploration

After breakfast, depart in the morning on a motorized pirogue (traditional Congolese canoe – comfortable and motorized). Enjoy day riding on the river past all the spectacles of the twin river cities of Kinshasa and Brazzaville, the colossal capital of 20 million across the river, and the former palaces and monuments of African History set against its skyscrapers and modern face. As we cruise, stop at midriver islands for picnics and wave to other boat traffic carrying all sorts of cargo from the interior. Dinner and overnight in tented safari camp. 

Day 4: Congo River Cruising & Exploration

After breakfast, depart in the morning for traveling farther down the river, deep into the interior of the country. Enjoy the views of the colossal new stadiums, universities, bridges, and monuments built for the African Games of 2015. As these fade into the green, witness the mighty currents of the Malabo Pool (Stanley Pool) and the start of ancient Kongo (Kongo Kingdom,) where life outside the twin capitals is largely traditional and unchanged for ages. Dinner and overnight in tourist tented safari camp.

Day 5: Congo River Cruising & Exploration

Visit villages and forest tribes, local crafts and traditional houses. Lots of villages and riverlife to see, and great birdwatching opportunities over the water as well, in the deepest, fastest river in the world. Explore the rainforest and watch for animals this afternoon and tonight nearby. Dinner and overnight in tourist tented safari camp.

Day 6: Return to Brazzaville

On your return to Brazzaville cruise down the opposite bank, and view the cultural life and if lucky, river and wildlife of Congo-Kinshasa! Enjoy picnics and drinks en route. Overnight in Brazzaville hotel 

Day 7: Final Day - Departure

After breakfast and hotel check-out, relive the highlights of your expedition with your friends, and stop at local markets for last minute gifts. Enjoy a casual drive through town to any places you like, before your transfer to the airport and sendoff.
