ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
The Republic of the Congo is a developing country in central Africa, with limited tourism facilities.

Many national governments strongly recommend no travel to the Pool region and to avoid non-essential travel to other areas except for the cities of Brazzaville and Pointe-Noire, where a high degree of caution should be exercised.

The Congo's main attractions are its tropical rainforest, and the amazing variety of animals including chimpanzees, lowland gorillas, elephants, hippopotamus, leopards.

Points of interest for any visitor to the Congo include the coastal beaches near Pointe-Noire, cruising the Congo River and Odzala National Park.
