This place reminded me of Tanzania about 20 years ago. We were starting out and our lodge team spoke mostly Swahili and only a few spoke English. This has changed and the majority of people you meet will speak English.
In the camps, the crew spoke very little English other than the camp officials. We couldn’t ask them for their stories without help from managers. In Brazzaville, the capital of the Republic of Congo, we enjoyed chatting with Dan, our local English guide who gave us a good overview of the country.
I would say it’s for someone like Alisa and I who have been to East and Southern Africa and want to experience ‘something else’. It was “something else” for sure.
That said, we met a couple from New York who were there and had never been on Safari before but loved their time here. They were really disconnected (not much wi-fi here), enjoyed every encounter thoroughly, appreciated the little things, good food, barely took photos and brought a film camera – so if you’re like them, you will love this place. .
Does this look like your “hallway”? Let’s chat and see how we can get you here.
