D.R.Congo

Welcome to the Heart of Darkness

Much has been said and written about the Zaire, the present Democratic Republic of Congo.
Nevertheless, pictures showing the beauty of the place are not very often encountered.
Below, a gallery of images from mainly the Bas Congo Province( former Bas-Zaire Province). At the time of the independence of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the province was part of the greater province of Leopoldville.

There are many books that have been very well written about this troubled but fascinating part of the world. One of them is “Dancing in the Glory of Monsters- The Collapse of the Congo and the Great War on Africa“, Jason Stearns.
