 About the Book 

Zaire. A country unspoiled by tourism. A country of contrasts, not just of landscape and climate, but of culture. There is the contrast between modern, technocratic life and African tradition. Zaire is not a typical holiday country. There are noMoreZaire. A country unspoiled by tourism. A country of contrasts, not just of landscape and climate, but of culture. There is the contrast between modern, technocratic life and African tradition. Zaire is not a typical holiday country. There are no clubs here, and no mass tourism - although Zaire is not lacking in good accommodation and sports facilities. One is not over-organized or burdened by choice. There is nothing superfluous. You visit Zaire to observe, to experience and gather impressions. Impressions of African village-life: lazy conversation under the mango trees, Mama stirring fou-fou at the hearth or baking beignets, African songs from morning to evening, the dull pounding of pestles in mortars, rhythmic tones here and there, the gentle stirring of unhurried life anchored fast to the laws of nature. And this is the book to prepare you for your trip, and to take along on your travels.
