Colorful and charming, Brazzaville is an endearing introduction to the culture and cuisine of the Republic of the Congo. The capital is safe, welcoming, and easy to navigate, and it’s worth spending some time before or after your journey discovering its Modernist architecture, energetic markets, and lovely riverfront restaurants. One don’t-miss highlight is an experience with the Sapeurs, a fascinating subculture of street fashion icons whose expressive, dandyish outfits are considered part of Congolese cultural heritage. Sapeur tours must be booked in advance; contact us at info@kambaafrica.com.

Our Journeys include a half day tour of Brazzaville that takes in the city’s highlights, including the Modernist masterpiece St. Anne’s Basilica; Poto-Poto Market, an excellent source for exuberantly patterned textiles; the Marché Plateau Ville, where local artisans sell masks and carvings; and a drive over the iconic Independence Bridge to La Corniche, overlooking the Congo River.

Make time to sample Congolese cuisine, which blends French techniques and African flavors. Highlights include the elegant waterfront destination Mami Wata; La Mandarine, a delicious Lebanese-French bakery and café; and Glacy, which specializes in ice cream that highlights the flavors of the jungle.
