Compare cheap flights to Congo, Democratic Republic
The Democratic Republic of the Congo or DRC is the largest country in Central Africa. It is also called Congo-Kinshasa to distinguish it from its neighbor, the Republic of Congo or Congo-Brazzaville. In the past, the DRC used to be known as Belgian Congo, the Congo Free State, Zaire, Congo-Leopoldville or the Republic of the Congo.
The country lies on the Equator, which means that the climate on some parts is hot and humid. One-third of the country is at the northern hemisphere, while the remaining two-thirds belong to the south. The climate in the river basin is hot, while it becomes dry and cool at the southern highlands and the alpine wind blows in the Ruwenzori Range.
