      UM BONGO

      Republic of Congo Feb 3, 2004 at 2:54 AM

      I am thinking of visiting the Congo, and the apes are a must. I will go next year, so have plenty of time to plan. I will be travelling alone, and do not speak the lingo, but will learn some. Which Congo is the safest, and which would be the most rewarding. Can you also advice me on tours or operators on landing, where ever that might be. I was in the Amazon in April, and have desided to visit lots of rainforest, and the Congo is next on my list. Thanks. Steve
