Consecrated in 1949, the Basilique St. Anne is a beautiful church and a reminder of French colonialism.
This beautiful Bascilica in central Brazzaville is a great piece of architecture. It has unique green tiles that add a special beauty to the building. There is plenty of parking if you chose to drive as the area where it is located can be busy with traffic. But, this is a peaceful oasis.

Founded in 1965, the Musée National du Congo features a collection of Congolese art and historical artifacts.
Worth a brief stop for some interesting masks and tribal artifacts. There are more and better quality items in museums throughout Europe and the USA. An mildly interesting diversion at best.

It is sad but it is a bitter reality in 2015. I have spent 4 nights in Iboubikro, part of Lésio Louna Reserve. Unfortunately. One night would be enough!
Accommodation in Iboubikro is basic. But I am okay with that. No fan in the rooms. The beds, shared restrooms and also shared kitchen left the best times behind but who cares? It's Congo and you want to see forest animals!
But you will see two young gorilla males in Iboubikro these days only (Owando and Yengo; one day they will be hopefully released back into the forest). And that's it!
The project (Congo's govt+John Aspinall foundation) in Iboubikro is not in good shape. You will see a shortage of money every hour of your stay.
Trip to Lake Blue (Lac Bleu) is okay but it's a question of 1 hour not more and a half day trip to Abio is a bad joke. There is only one ill gorilla silverback (Sid; very sad experience) and if you are lucky you will see a few faces of hippos. I know it's not easy to see a hippo in Congo so I appreciate it but do not expect more. There is no possibility to track gorillas at this time and believe me you will barely see any animals here!
Go to Noubalé-Ndoki or to Odzala NP if you want to see some forest animals in Congo. I have not been there yet but I have good referencies from my friends. Lésio Louna and Lefini Reserve must just wake up.

Wild safari tours is a tour operator based in congo Brazzaville specialized on safari,community tourism with pygmies, cultural tourism. We organize tours in several national parks within the congo.
Congo is a hidden gem and has stunning nature and wildlife, including amongst others forrest elephants, pygmees, low-land gorillas and Congo river. Wild Safari Tours is a local tour agent run by the lovely Francel, who can assist you with almost anything you want to experience in Congo. Francel was very professional, knowledgable, flexible and a very likable guy, who helped me around, took me on trips and also took time to share dinners with me in Brazzaville. Can definitely recommend this company and will use it again when I return to Congo

When Brazzaville was the capital of the "Free France" of the 1940s, Charles de Gaulle had a house built for him, the site of which is popular among visitors still today.
This site is billed as the house where Charles de Gaulle stayed. It's billed as typical architecture of the time. Unfortunately, it is now the residence of the French Ambassador and sits behind VERY high walls which make viewing impossible. To make matters worse, there is currently construction in the area making it very difficult to get to. Of note, there is a great view of the Brazzaville skyline from just outside the house. It's overgrown with broken bottles, but worth it for a lovely skyline view.

The Institut français (French Institute) has a program of live music, dance, art Exhibitions, theatre, cinema, and much more every month. There are events almost every day, and it is usually free, or very low cost. The Institute also has a French-language lending library, French language courses, computer courses, a restaurant, and much more. Highly recommended for visitors to Brazzaville and residents alike.

One of Brazzaville's most prominent attractions, the Temple Mosque is distinguished by its architecture and reputation as the most important Muslim religious site in the city.
I haven't been to Brazzaville but am considering moving there for a job, I looked on Trip Advisor for some input and saw this photo. This is actually the Dome of the Rock in Israel...! If you're planning to go to the Congo to see this, you're in the wrong continent!
