Resolved Question: Traveling to the Congo?
I realize it is very risky in the Congo right now, but I have this overwhelming urge to go there. Maybe I could wait until things have stabilized a bit (if ever), but I looked online and I haven't found a single way to travel there. There are no tour groups, no trip packages, nothing. Is there any (and it doesn't have to be something fancy...I don't mind sleeping in tents and walking everywhere) organization or group that goes to the Congo? Please, no religious groups. Chefao, please there is no need for sarcasm and rude remarks. A simple "the area is too dangerous for travel which is why there are no tours available" would have sufficed. Thank you.
