With around 80% of the country comprised of the Congo Rainforest, it’s fair to say the Republic of Congo is an exciting nature destination filled with endless opportunities. There are many incredible things to do in the great outdoors of the Congo such as a visit to one of its stunning national parks. The Louana National Park is known for its population of wild gorillas, while Odzala National Park is a paradise for those who enjoy hiking, camping and trekking. You can also venture down the famous river on a boat trip and take in the sights, while those venturing into the capital Brazzaville will find plenty of interesting heritage sites alongside bustling markets and authentic street restaurants.

Arriving In Congo

The main airport in Congo is Maya-Maya Airport which serves the capital Brazzaville, while the country also has a few other international airports mainly handling regional flights.

However, it is possible to travel from the UAE to Congo with just a single stopover as the airport has plenty of connections.

When you have landed at the airport you can find taxis just outside of the terminal building in order to travel into the city. The airport itself is relatively small but offers all of the essential amenities and facilities you would need including shops and places to eat and drink.
