Tourism in the Central African Republic


Tourism in the Central African Republic

Tourism in the Central African Republic has been negatively effected by its recent troubled history and fighting in neighbouring countries. Security in the country is unstable, particularly in its north and northwest. [ [http://www.lonelyplanet.com/worldguide/central-african-republic/ Central African Republic: Overview,] Lonely Planet] In 2007 and 2008 the United States issued a travel warning for the CAR warning of bandits, armed groups of rebels, and poachers particularly outside of the capital Bangui. The country's government cannot guarantee the safety of travellers in most of the country. In April 2007, a hunting party near Ndele town was attacked and a French hunter was killed and three others were injured.

The Central African Republic is a landlocked and remote country, and a lack of air access makes it an expensive destination. [http://www.euromonitor.com/Travel_And_Tourism_in_Central_African_Republic Travel And Tourism in Central African Republic,] March 2007, Euromonitor.] Locations in the country attractive to travellers include the Chutes De Boali, waterfalls of a height of 50 m (164 ft). [ [http://www.lonelyplanet.com/worldguide/central-african-republic/sights/106106?list=true Chutes de Boali,] Lonely Planet] Dzanga-Sangha National Park in the south west of the country has gorillas and elephants. The Baka people live in this area. Bayanga beside the Sangha River is the main village near to the national park. The village has some small guesthouses and a lodge. [ [http://www.lonelyplanet.com/worldguide/central-african-republic/sights/106118?list=true Dzanga-Sangha National Park,] Lonely Planet] The best time to visit most of the country is from November to April.
