CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC?

Central African Republic or CAR as it is often referred to is probably one of the least known African countries, it is located in the center of the continent (hence the name) just north of the DRC. Like it’s bigger jungle enveloped cousin to the south CAR has a splendid variety of wildlife and natural beauty on offer. As such Inspired Journeys decided to add the Central African Republic to its pioneering destinations, and is offering a discovery trip, where you can join professional guide and co-founder Ethan Kinsey on a trip to Dzanga Sangha National Park. Dates are still to be set, so if you are interested you can let us know when you would be available.
