The Republic of the Congo (French: République du Congo), also referred to as Congo-Brazzaville, is a country located in Central Africa. It is bordered by Gabon, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Angolan exclave of Cabinda.

The region was dominated by Bantu-speaking tribes, who built trade links leading into the Congo River basin. Congo-Brazzaville was formerly part of the French colony of Equatorial Africa. Upon independence in 1960, the former colony of French Congo became the Republic of the Congo. The People's Republic of the Congo was a Marxist-Leninist single-party state from 1970 to 1991. Multiparty elections have been held since 1992, although a democratically elected government was ousted in the 1997 Republic of the Congo Civil War.

Back to the Basics of Safari

Safari in Swahili primarily means "journey", normally pertaining to hunting for survival and exploration of lands that may be turned into communities by the local tribes. However, in the modern sense, safari seems to have changed its meaning into discovery and adventure amidst wildlife and nature and the habitats of animals, birds, plant species that thrive in the vast pieces of land. The most common form of safariing is taken by means of walking which are designed specifically for hardy people. Hardy are the natives here and so they were adopted to the forms of living. They maintain walking trails that explorers use until these days. More travel tips about Back to the Basics of Safari
