Congo (DRC) What To Do

Trek to meet Pygmies

It is estimated that a quarter to a half a million pygmies live in the great rainforests of the Congo basin. Their history has not been an easy one and even today they are said to suffer discrimination. Tales of slavery and cannibalism abound and it can be hard to separate myth from fact when much of the land they inhabit continues to be exploited by mining companies. However having the chance to trek into the forest to visit these remarkable hunter-gather descendents in their own territory and share their traditions, represents an opportunity to learn more about one of the most ancient of African cultures.
