Worlddata.info says: The Democratic Republic of the Congo recorded a total of 351,000 tourists in 2016, ranking 142nd in the world in absolute terms.
The fact that larger countries regularly perform better in a comparison of the absolute number of guests is obvious. By putting the tourist numbers in relation to the population of the Congo (Dem. Republic), the result is much more comparable picture: With 0.0037 tourists per resident, the Congo (Dem. Republic) ranked 197th in the world. In Central Africa, it ranked 7th.
In 2018, the Congo (Dem. Republic) generated around 60.50 million US dollars in the tourism sector alone. This corresponds to 0.11 percent of its the gross domestic product and approximately 5 percent of all international tourism receipts in Central Africa.
The CDC, the US State Department and other world organizations are saying that the DR Congo and many African Countries are RED (Do Not Travel) or ORANGE (Reconsider travel) zones; discouraging people from traveling and doing business in those African countries.
There's much to see, to learn and to share about Kongo. So, take the time to look around, and learn all there is to know about Kongo and its Culture then massively participate. We hope you enjoy the Kongo experience and take a moment to share with others around you.
Be part of the revolutionary and disruptive socio-economic fundraising platform that is a cross between conventional crowdfunding and the traditional African social crowdfunding (aka susu, tontine, likelemba, djangi, etc…). It’s proprietary Turnkey Opportunity Program (TOP) designed to raise venture capital for investment in social impact projects in diaspora communities across North America. My Green Ventures facilitates the flow of capitals from non- accredited investors into SME’s, which in turn will stimulate the local economies in the communities that are home to these diaspora groups.
