They say that the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is the country around which all other African countries revolve and that you can only know Africa if you know the DRC. Two-thirds of the size of Western Europe and home to nearly 300 different languages and tribes, the DRC is a country of vast jungles and dark corners, endangered primates and tribal strongholds, equatorial rainforests and active volcanoes. It is easy to see the appeal.

Kahuzi-Biega National Park
Over the years that Chris has been visiting the DRC, he has experienced the buzz of the cities and wild markets, explored remote national parks, come face to face with lowland gorillas, enjoyed a beer with pioneering conservationist Carlos Schuler and taken high tea with the UN forces head of operations. Few know the DRC like Chris and he always relishes the chance to share its magic with others.
