My girlfriend and I just watched a pretty cool doc called "Stop Filming Us" about how we view Congolese as people "in need" rather than people who have something to offer and then we saw the nature is beautiful and the culture is pretty rich so we decided to try our first ever road trip together and the first time either of us have been to Africa.
We plan to start in Goma make our way up through the Kivus, For sure do some hiking and gorilla watching in Kivus plus visit pygmy villages, then make it up to Isiro. Then head to Kisangani
stopping at village inns along the way maybe camp (I still need to check what the camping policies are in DRC - anybody know)? then follow N7 to Lodja to Kananga.
MAJOR QUESTION: Which has more to see? The way to Lubumbashi or Kinshasa? We don't know which we want to end our trip at.
