The Republic of the Congo (French: République du Congo), also known as Congo Republic or Congo-Brazzaville, is a country located in Central Africa. It is bordered by Gabon, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Angolan exclave of Cabinda.

The region was dominated by Bantu-speaking tribes, who built trade links leading into the Congo River basin. Congo-Brazzaville was formerly part of the French colony of Equatorial Africa. Upon independence in 1960, the former colony of French Congo became the Republic of the Congo. The People's Republic of the Congo was a Marxist–Leninist single-party state from 1970 to 1991. Multi-party elections have been held since 1992, although a democratically elected government was ousted in the 1997 Republic of the Congo Civil War.

Bantu-speaking peoples who founded tribes during the Bantu expansions largely displaced and absorbed the earliest inhabitants of the region, the Pygmy people, about 1500 BC. The Bakongo, a Bantu ethnicity that also occupied parts of present-day Angola, Gabon and Democratic Republic of the Congo, formed the basis for ethnic affinities and rivalries among those countries. Several Bantu kingdoms—notably those of the Kongo, the Loango, and the Teke—built trade links leading into the Congo River basin.

The Portuguese explorer Diogo Cão reached the mouth of the Congo in 1484. Commercial relationships quickly grew up between the inland Bantu kingdoms and European merchants who traded various commodities, manufactured goods, and slaves captured from the hinterlands. For centuries the Congo river delta served as a major commercial hub for transatlantic trade. However, direct European colonization of the area began in the late 19th century and eroded the power of the Bantu societies in the region.

The area north of the Congo River came under French sovereignty in 1880 as a result of Pierre de Brazza's treaty with Makoko of the Bateke. This Congo Colony became known first as French Congo, then as Middle Congo in 1903. In 1908, France organized French Equatorial Africa (AEF), comprising Middle Congo, Gabon, Chad, and Oubangui-Chari (the modern Central African Republic). The French designated Brazzaville as the federal capital. Economic development during the first 50 years of colonial rule in Congo centered on natural-resource extraction. The methods were often brutal: establishment of the Congo–Ocean Railroad following World War I has been estimated to have cost at least 14,000 lives.

During the Nazi occupation of France during World War II, Brazzaville functioned as the symbolic capital of Free France between 1940 and 1943. The Brazzaville Conference of 1944 heralded a period of major reform in French colonial policy. Congo benefited from the postwar expansion of colonial administrative and infrastructure spending as a result of its central geographic location within AEF and the federal capital at Brazzaville. It also received a local legislature after the adoption of the 1946 constitution that established the Fourth Republic.

Following the revision of the French constitution that established the Fifth Republic in 1958, the AEF dissolved into its constituent parts, each of which became an autonomous colony within the French Community. During these reforms, Middle Congo became known as the Republic of the Congo in 1958[9] and published its first constitution in 1959. Antagonism between the pro-Opangault Mbochis and the pro-Youlou Balalis resulted in a series of riots in Brazzaville in February 1959, which the French Army subdued.

The Republic of the Congo received full independence from France on August 15, 1960. Fulbert Youlou ruled as the country's first president until labour elements and rival political parties instigated a three-day uprising that ousted him. The Congolese military took charge of the country briefly and installed a civilian provisional government headed by Alphonse Massamba-Débat.

Under the 1963 constitution, Massamba-Débat was elected President for a five-year term. During Massamba-Débat's term in office the regime adopted scientific socialism as the country's constitutional ideology. In 1965, Congo established relations with the Soviet Union, the People's Republic of China, North Korea and North Vietnam. Massamba-Débat was unable to reconcile various institutional and ideological factions and his regime ended abruptly with a bloodless coup d'état in August 1968.

Congo - 2016 | Travel

2 Weeks in Uganda, Rwanda and the DRC

I spent two weeks in July on a trip to Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), and Rwanda on a small group Africa tour with Rock My Adventure.

Read about the whole trip here:

In Rwanda we spent a couple of days exploring Kigali.

In the DRC we climbed Mount Nyiragongo volcano, home to the world's largest lava lake. The Mt Nyiragongo hike was tough, but so worth it for the views! Read about it here:

In Uganda we went gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, which I've written more about here:

We then went on safari in Queen Elizabeth National Park, before heading to Hairy Lemon Island on the Nile River. We finished the trip in Bujagali, staying at Nile River Explorers, where some of us went white water rafting and SUP on the Nile.

The Best of the Democratic Republic of Congo

DR Congo is a vast country with immense economic resources and, until recently, has been at the center of what some observers call Africa's world war, with widespread civilian suffering the result.

The war claimed an up to six million lives, either as a direct result of fighting or because of disease and malnutrition.

The war had an economic as well as a political side. Fighting was fuelled by the country's vast mineral wealth, with all sides taking advantage of the anarchy to plunder natural resources. Some militia fight on in the east, where a big United Nations force is trying to keep the peace.

Ngaga Camp, Republic of Congo


We loved staying at this beautiful jungle lodge. Just six thatch-and-timber suites set in the middle of the rainforest, Ngaga Camp makes a truly tranquil base from which to explore the forest on guided nature walks and gorilla treks. As if all these advantages aren’t enough, the camp shares its emerald address with Odzala’s gorilla research team. Critically endangered, the western lowland gorillas are definitely the main attraction and getting to meet some of the researchers who are dedicated to studying them is very special. Like us, you’ll probably love the feel-good factor of knowing that every tourist dollar contributes to conserving both the great apes and their habitat. Next episode: we meet a Congo Community.

Facts about Mali

• Mali was the cradle of the Empire of Ghana, West Africa’s very first black empire.
• Djenne– enjoy an amazing weekly market here in the shadows of the biggest man-made mud structure in the world, the spectacular Grand Mosque of Djenne.
• Timbuktu was an important center of Islamic learning and trade during medieval times. Some buildings remain from its hay day, and it’s still an important stop for salt caravans.
• Mopti– a river town with no equal, Mopti is a bustling harbor, market place, and a wonderful spot to take off on a river adventure in a pinasse.

Mali
Islam was introduced to West Africa in the 11th century and is the predominant religion in much of the region. It is estimated that 90% of Malians are Muslims (mostly Sunnis, about 5% of Christians (about two-thirds of Catholics and one-third of Protestants), and the remaining 5% are adherents of traditional indigenous or animistic beliefs. Malians often wear fluffy and colorful dresses. Malians often participate in traditional festivals, dances and ceremonies. Greeting the people is very important, you should get acquainted with the greetings in French or, better still, in Bambara. Sellers should be treated accordingly, even if you are just buying the bread only. . It is very important to show a general interest in the other person, so ask about family, work, kids, and so on.

Bamako
Bamako is the capital and the largest city of Mali with a population of 3.3 million people. In 2006, it was rated as the fastest growing city in Africa and the sixth fastest in the world. Bamako, the capital of Mali, may not have the cultural appeal of Timbuktu or Jenna, but it has a fascinating collection of architectural styles and an elegant location on the banks of the Niger River. It is also the center of the country's traditional music scene, and Malians of all ethnic groups flock to Bamako's nightclubs to dance at night to the sound of Cora, a lute-like instrument.
Wedding ceremony in traditional Mali style – people are singing the songs, dancing and having a traditional food. I saw personally wedding ceremony was for one week. Every day they have a guest and they are celebrating it. Mali people; they have their own traditions. One traditional I saw is; when bride will come at Groom home. Big sister of the groom will wash the face, hand and foot of the groom as well as his best friend. Like my friend was the best friend of the groom. He was sitting there and was the part of that ceremony. Dinner will serve only to close relatives - Beans with Beef & rice with mix vegetables and spicy sauce.

Timbuktu
Timbuktu lies at the border of the Sahara desert in Mali. It is a legendary place since 1324. Closely linked to Timbuktu by the Saharan trade in gold, salt and slaves, Djenné is known the world over for its adobe architecture, in particular the Grand Mosque, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the largest mud-brick building in the world.

Best time to visit:
The best time to visit Mali is from November to February, during the cool and dry season.

Congo - the second longest river in Africa

Aerial view of Congo river.

The Congo River is a river in Africa and the world's deepest river with measured depths in excess of 220 m (720 ft). It is the second largest river in the world by discharge (after the Amazon). The Congo-Chambeshi river has an overall length of 4,700 km (2,920 mi), which makes it the ninth longest river (in terms of discharge, the Chambeshi is a tributary of the Lualaba River, Lualaba being the name of the Congo River upstream of the Boyoma Falls, extending for 1,800 km). Measured along the Lualaba, the Congo River has a total length of 4,370 km (2,715 mi), The Congo Basin has a total area of about 4 million km², or 13% of the entire African landmass.

The Congo gets its name from the Kingdom of Kongo which was situated on the left banks of the river estuary. The kingdom is in term named for its Bantu population, in the 17th century reported as Esikongo. South of the Kongo kingdom proper lay the similarly named Kakongo kingdom, mentioned in 1535. Abraham Ortelius in his world map of 1564 labels as Manicongo the city at the mouth of the river. The tribal names in kongo possibly derive from a word for a public gathering or tribal assembly.

The Best of the Congo

The Republic of the Congo (French: République du Congo), also known as the Congo Republic,Congo-Brazzaville or simply Congo, is a country located in Central Africa. It is bordered by five countries: Gabon and the Atlantic Ocean to the west; Cameroon to the northwest; the Central African Republic to the northeast; the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the east and south; and the Angolan exclave of Cabinda to the southwest.

The region was dominated by Bantu-speaking tribes, who built trade links leading into the Congo River basin. Congo-Brazzaville was formerly part of the French colony of Equatorial Africa.Upon independence in 1960, the former colony of French Congo became the Republic of the Congo. The People's Republic of the Congo was a Marxist–Leninist one-party state from 1970 to 1991. Multi-party elections have been held since 1992, although a democratically elected government was ousted in the 1997 Republic of the Congo Civil War and President Denis Sassou Nguesso has ruled for 26 of the past 36 years.

The political stability and development of hydrocarbon production made Republic of the Congo the fourth largest oil producer in the Gulf of Guinea and provided the country with a relative prosperity despite the poor state of its infrastructure and public services and an unequal distribution of oil revenues
