Kamba operates in the small, welcoming, and peaceful Republic of the Congo, which lies hundreds of miles west of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (a separate country that you may recognize from news headlines). Straddling the Equator in Central Africa and bordered by Gabon and Cameroon, the ROC is more than 60% forest. Brazzaville, the charming capital, is a walkable city of colorful markets, French Colonial architecture, and picturesque restaurants along the banks of the Congo River.
To visit the Republic of the Congo is to immerse yourself in its fertile tapestry of jungle, swamp, savanna, rivers, and the mineral-rich clearings called baïs. You will witness the stunning biodiversity of the world’s second largest rainforest: Gorillas and monkeys swinging high in the trees. Elephants and buffalos grazing in the marshes. A kaleidoscope of birds and butterflies. To experience the Congo is to deepen your understanding of the natural world and how it is all connected.
