The country is covered mainly by dense tropical rainforest, with stretches of wooded savanna. Congo as a whole is sparsely inhabited, with more than half of its population living in the cities.

The capital city Brazzaville is a good starting point for visitors. From the capital you can take then a trip up the Congo river, which separates the country from from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). After passing lush rainforests you would make your way to, on of the two national parks, one in the far north and one in the center, which will give you a chance to spot lowland forest elephants or gorillas.
