CAIRO - 14 September 2017: Torn by war, military violence and bad economic conditions as it is, the Central African Republic is arguably the richest country in the world when it comes to natural beauty and diversity of wildlife— even if the country is a “no go” as a tourist destination.
However, the country does have its charms, which come in various shapes and sizes, ranging from rare butterflies to gorillas and elephants — let alone the hospitality of the people. There is nowhere on Earth that is more suitable for safaris and lovers of wildlife as the Central African Republic.
Bangui, the capital of the Central African Republic, is situated on the banks of the Ubangi River and ranks atop the most worth-visiting places in Africa, especially if you are a fan of shopping and nightlife.
If you are to visit the country, you must be a fan of primitive nature. You must be adaptable and flexible to the change in the elements, especially the weather. At times, you will witness all the seasons in one day: from soaring temperatures to cloudy skies and ending up with heavy rains.
In addition, the presidential palace is a key attraction. The setting of the city within the rapids of the Ubangi River and the rolling hills nearby make it a city with natural charm.
The city has rough and dusty roads, the so-called “Big Mosque”, and a number of museums that document the colonization of the country and the suffering of its indigenous people. If you enjoy the sights and the atmosphere, stick around. You may end up spending more time than you planned.
