The Unknown Earth Paradise

“RDC: the unknown earth paradise …”

The second largest after Algeria in term of superficies, this central country is bordered by many countries namely the Republic of the Congo, the Central African Republic, and South Sudan to the north, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and Tanzania to the East, Zambia and Angola to the south and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. It is the second largest country in Africa by area and the eleventh largest in the world. With a population of over 100 million, the Democratic Republic of the Congo is the most populated officially Francophone country, the fourth most populated nation in Africa and the nineteenth most populated country in the world.

The Democratic Republic of Congo is widely considered to be the richest country in the world regarding natural resources; its untapped deposits of raw minerals are estimated to be worth in excess of US$24 trillion. The Congo has 70% of the world's coltan, a third of its cobalt, more than 30% of its diamond reserves, and a tenth of its copper.

Coltan, short for columbite-tantalite, is a mineral that combines two metals columbium or niobium, and tantalum. It is the latter that makes it important. Tantalum is used to make aircraft parts, rockets, precision tools, but especially capacitors for computers and mobile phones. Some say Coltan is the oil for the 21st centry.

Congo is a tourist country par excellence, the vast land of Central Africa enjoyes rich landscape, various types of terrain, rich population of plants and animals species not found elsewhere. DRC is home of both mountain and lowland gorillas which still exist in the wild, home of the special OKAPI, a very unique animal that is both a zebra and giraffe in the same time, or the unique BONOBO monkey, that scientists claim is the close animal DNA to human DNA. Both Bonobo and Okapi not found anywhere else on earth.

Tourist attraction will start from the amazing Congo River (French: le fleuve Congo) the world's deepest river with measured depths in excess of 220 m and the second largest river in the world by discharge (after the Amazon), with an overall length of 4,700 km.

Besides, amazing DRC can offer a summits of active volcanoes and see a boiling lava lake in the crater of the Nyiragongo Volcano, which is a Mount with an elevation of 3,470 m. The enjoyment can be extended to Virunga National Park, home of the most biologically diverse areas on the planet and home to the world's critically endangered mountain gorillas. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site
