The natural and cultural wealth of the Republic of the Congo capital make it one of Africa’s greatest attractions. There are few experiences as satisfying as drinking a French 75 (1) in MamiWata (2), and enjoying the amazing views of Brazzaville, in the heart of the Congo. Congo’s capital and most populated city , aka “Brazza“, is a lively former Belgian colony surrounded by natural wonders.

Life in Brazza begins in the vibrant districts of Poto-Poto and Moungali, where the Poto-Poto Ar School is surrounded by shops of bright colored fabrics, African art and architecture selfie-worthy. A trip downtown will take to the Tree of Brazza, the Nabemba Tower (3), the Sacred Heart Cathedral (4) and Congo’s National Museum.

However, the true attractive of Brazzaville is in the outskirts, in the amazing Congolese jungle. Spending an afternoon in the Lesio Luna Natural Reserve (5), known to be inhabited by gorillas and hipos, as well as home to the Loufoulakari Falls (6), is a unique experience you can’t miss.

The majestic Congo River imbues Brazza with life and embodies the dreams of generations of adventurers.

Lastly, there is no better souvenirthan a garment hand-made wit exquisite Congolese fabrics, as unforgettable as a trip to Congo.
