Africa - Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) (Chapter)
This is the Democratic Republic of Congo chapter from Lonely Planet’s Africa guidebook.
After a decades-long decline and anarchy, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC; formerly Zaïre) is headed in the right direction. There’s still a long way to go but the world’s largest UN peacekeeping force brings optimism. With huge swaths of rainforest, gushing rivers and smoking volcanoes, DRC is the ultimate African adventure.
