Central Africa Backpacking Tours

Situated in the centre of Africa, Central Africa backpacking tours offer a chance to explore some of the most fascinating and untouched destinations of Africa.

While conflict has sadly caused a huge ripple across this area, Central Africa remains one of the most interesting destinations, with rich culture, breathtaking natural forests and rare wildlife to be found. With a diverse tribal presence that spans across the tiny villages and large cities of Central Africa, the area is one of the lesser travelled ‘off the beaten path’ destinations of Africa.

Key countries within Central Africa include Angola, Burundi, the Central African Republic, Chad, Gabon, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and the Republic of Congo (Congo).
