Central African Republic travel guide

The Central African Republic became independent from France and has a unique blend of old and new in its cities. Bangui is best explored through mingling with its people. Its colonial French architecture and food are best exhibited in its sight-seeing tours. The sights that are essentially on every list are Notre-Dame of Bangui Cathedral, Dzanga-Sangha reserve, Boali waterfalls, OubanguiRiver, Manovo-Gounda National Park, Bangui Mosque, Place de la Republique, Melanie’s Beauty, and the Bamingui-Bangoran National Park. The Old Town areas are particularly impressive with cobbled stone ways reminiscent of French colonialism Read more

  • Do bargain at local shops and take home those beautiful souvenirs like butterfly collections, ethnic jewellery, and keepsakes. Try the K-Cinq or KilometreCinq Avenue which is the best spot in Bangui If shopping, hotel accommodation, transportation and nightlife. There are a handful of hotels with spa, pool and club facilities at Bangui which are located close to the landmarks, airport and sights in Bangui.
  • The Central African Republic buses, taxis, ferry services, minivans and rentals. With the least pollution explore the Sahara Desert, rainforests, wildlife, elephants and gorillas sometime between December and May. Its tropical climate, lots of rainfall and changing landscapes make it an awesome experience. Agriculture is the mainstay occupation with crops like banana, okra, yam, millets, onions and garlic, palm oil and sorghum. Its population is one of the poorest and its independence from France has turned the region into an unstable, strife-ridden place.
  • The Musee de Boganda in Bangui and others at Boali, Quadda, Bayanga give you an insight into the history, culture and traditions of the Central African Republic. There are many wonderful sights and memories to be captured in the CAR.
