Congo flight - gorillas in the mist
Not to be confused with the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaïre), our cheap flights to Congo (officially known as the Republic of Congo) will land you in a friendlier version of its sprawling neighbour, located on the opposite side of the Congo River. One of the biggest attractions are the lowland gorillas and wild chimpanzees (Congo has over 80% of the world's population). Congo has dense rainforest and impenetrable jungle which contrast with a narrow 169km coastal strip that plays host to a budding oil industry. Outside Congo's capital Brazzaville, with its French-flavour, attractions include the white-water Congo River rapids, the surf beaches of Pointe-Noire and Odzala National Park - one of the Africa's largest tropical ecosystems.
