We start our journey in the Republic of the Congo, also called Congo-Brazzaville, is a central African nation with rainforest reserves that are habitats for gorillas. Its capital city, Brazzaville, lies across the Congo River from Kinshasa, the capital of neighboring Democratic Republic of the Congo. Brazzaville's highlights include traditional craft markets and great views of the mighty Congo River. Enter into the steamy jungles hiding half of the world's lowland gorillas, masses of forest elephants and hooting, swinging troops of chimpanzees.
