Brazzaville and Pointe-Noir
Brazzaville is a pleasant city situated on the Congo River, and it's possible to travel a short distance by car to see the rapids on the river that travellers of old attempted to negotiate. A famous landmark in Brazzaville is Basilique Sainte-Anne with its stone arches. The Marché Total, the main market of the city, is packed with an incredibly wide range of goods. Pointe-Noir is where most of the expats working in the country live. The city is divided into two sections, the European quarter and La Cité, which is mainly inhabited by locals and is a bustling area with lots to see and many traditional foods on offer. Beaches nearby Pointe-Noir give visitors a chance to enjoy the sun and sea.
Out of Town
Visit Diosso Gorge, about 30 minutes north of Pointe-Noir, to see rainforest, high red cliffs and amazing views. A trip to Parc National Conkouati-Douli, which stretches from the coast up to the mountains, is essential. Boat trips on the Ngongo River, forest walks and interacting with chimpanzees are popular activities, and from November to February you can watch sea turtles lay their eggs along the beaches. Parc National D'Odzala, in the northwest of the country, is an area of remarkable biodiversity and is where you'll observe the western lowland gorillas.
