Front Cover
Lonely Planet, Jan 1, 1994 - Travel - 559 pages
Where else in the world can you paddle a canoe down a jungle river for weeks on end, hunt with the Pygmies, climb an active volcano, come face-to-face with a mountain gorilla, trek through the snow-capped 'Mountains of the Moon', join a search for white rhinos, take a three-day elephant safari or dance all night to Congo music?Journeying independently to Central Africa, the least visited area of Africa, requires a great deal of organisation, preparation and, most of all, a reliable, up-to-date guidebook. This book is packed with hard-to-get information for Cameroun, Zaire, the Central African Republic, Chad, the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon and Sao Tome.
