Africa - Congo (Chapter)
This is the Congo chapter from Lonely Planet's Africa guidebook.
Not to be confused with the Democratic Republic of Congo across the Congo River, Congo (officially known as the Republic of Congo and sometimes called Congo-Brazzaville) offers a friendlier, less-threatening version of its neighbour, though the crumbling infrastructure makes travel here just as tough.
