Visit an overgrown jungle palace, go hunting in the rain-forest with an ancient pygmy tribe and enjoy a heart-racing encounter with gorillas. In this immersive journey through the Democratic Republic of Congo, you’ll navigate river rapids in a narrow tree-trunk boat, you’ll travel through the mountains by train, and you’ll fly by helicopter into the conflicts of the east.
With the BBC’s Africa Correspondent Alastair Leithead as your guide, you’ll experience this beautiful but troubled country as it goes through significant political change. You’ll see the huge potential of the Congo for yourself, prompting you to ask how a country so rich, can remain so poor. Congo VR takes you to the story.
