This is the Detour: Democratic Republic of the Congo chapter from Lonely Planet's East Africa 9 guidebook.

  • squat with your head bowed and your eyes fixed on the ground as one of the world's largest primates bursts from a bamboo thicket during gorilla tracking
  • transport
  • witness firsthand nature's awesome power and the locals' irrepressible determination to recolonise the lava-flooded streets of Goma
  • restaurants and accommodation

Coverage includes: Understand The DRC, History, Survival Guide, Directory A-Z, Getting There & Away, Goma and Parc National Des Virungas.
