Democratic Republic of the Congo
The Democratic Republic of the Congo, sometimes referred to as Congo-Kinshasa after it’s capital city, has a tumultuous past, present, and future. I was fortunate to visit Goma and the Virunga in December of 2017 to see the mountain Gorillas and climb Nyiragongo Volcano. If you’re thinking about going to the DRC, I recommend reading Blood River, by Tim Butcher.
