Congo Safari Blog

You can write a blog about your day in Paris, or your week in China, but if you're doing a hard slog straight through the heart of the Congo it takes a few more words.

Belgian travellers Josephine and Frederik (pictured above) did just that when they drive their Landcruiser from Lubumbashi to Kinshasa. They chronicled the journey on this forum thread, and it makes a fascinating read with tales of breakdowns, endless bribe attempts, paperwork and permits, and locals they encountered, all with a tireless enthusiasm and a much-needed sense of humour!

It's 79 pages long, but worth a read!

  1. This is such a great story... these people are real adventurers, I can't imagine anyone going through what did again.
