DRC has grieved tumultuous ups and downs over the course of its long history that springs back years ago. As was so often the case, with the coming of colonialism (in this case Belgians), the area’s wealth of resources led to conflict and systemic abuse, which, then independence in 1960, have continued to experience repercussions. Fortunately, the DRC is relishing a period of considerable peace and stability, even in the historically volatile east, and the growth of tourism is only helping to consolidate; its economic and cultural benefits clear.

And that’s prodigious news, as the DRC really is a spectacular country. There is a vast array of locations in the DRC for the discerning traveler. When you consider the fact that much of Africa’s most popular melody originates from the country, there’s amply of proof that the DRC isn’t solitary for nature-lovers and offers copiousness of cultural practices to immerse oneself in. Congo is a haven gifted with both mountain gorillas and lowland gorillas making it exceptional and a special place worth a visit.

Here are the activities done in the DRC

 Gorilla trekking is an extraordinary experience worthy to be    taken because of the existence of the primates in the Virunga national park. These apes are charming, friendly and smart to be amongst. They are subdivided into relational groups and carry different attributes like say the silver backs act as the leaders, the fully developed female gorillas as the caretakers and the youthful who are only mischievous and are at all times in the trees.
