Bangui — 6 nights

Bangui, or Bangî in Sango, formerly written Bangi in English, is the capital and largest city of the Central African Republic. Take a break from Bangui with a short trip to Les Chutes de Boali in Boali, about 1h 10 min away. There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Notre-Dame of Bangui Cathedral, browse the eclectic array of goods at Marche Central (Central Market), browse the exhibits of Musee de Boganda (Boganda Museum), and admire all the interesting features of K-Cinq (Km-5 Intersection).

Natural attractions in Central African Republic include large forested areas rich in wildlife, especially lowland gorillas and elephants. One the most impoverished and historically unstable countries in the world, CAR remains known for its openness, its people praised for their welcoming nature and positive attitude. The Central African Republic Bush War began in 2004 and, despite a ceasefire in 2007, the fallout from the conflict and re-ignition of sectarian and political violence has made travel to the country inadvisable ever since.
