Central Africa (Republic Congo, DR Congo, Central African Republic) 2012, a set on Flickr.I spent part of late 2012 in the Central African countries of Republic of Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo and Central African Republic (although my trip through the eastern part of DRC was cut short though by the M23 invasion of Goma). I was there both for Lonely Planet researching the relevant chapters for the monster that is the Africa book and for a variety of magazines and websites. The Congo was a trip I had always wanted to make and it didn't let me down - gorillas and elephants, boat rides, surfing and hunting with the pygmies. An amazing experience. Enjoy the photos!
