MORE SHADES OF BLUE

We are pleased to announce that Alphonse Island is now open year-round to travellers, so the only blue we’re feeling this Monday is the shades of endless possibility.

Alphonse was previously closed from May through to end of September as this was the time to rest the adjoining St Francois atoll flats from fishing. But with growing leisure tourism, Alphonse island now remains open for scuba diving and other marine safari adventures including deep sea and fly fishing. May to September are dryer months and while there may be more wind, days are less humid and skies are clearer.

St Francois remains closed from May to September, and Astove and Cosmoledo from late April to early November.

Republic of the Congo & Central African Republic

WHAT WE LOVE: The Republic of the Congo and Central African Republic, both former French colonies, are 2 of the 6 countries across which the Congo Basin expands. Second in size to the mighty Amazon, the forests of the Congo Basin contain the greatest number of mammals, primates, birds, amphibians, fish and swallowtail butterflies in Africa. More than a 1,000 species of bird can be found here. The basin is a total of 3.7 million km2 and is home to some of the largest undisturbed stands of tropical rainforest on the planet, in addition to large wetlands. Connecting two of the most iconic locations - Odzala-Kokoua and Dzanga-Sangha National Parks - within this rainforest wilderness offers the most exciting opportunity to discover a part of Africa in a truly pioneering way, while making a significant contribution to the long-term conservation and community sustainability of this region. This is no longer the 'Heart of Darkness'. This is Africa unmasked, beautiful and powerful. This is the most exciting destination to be opening to tourism. This is CONGO CONSERVATION COMPANY waiting for you to discover the most remarkable and unspoilt natural wonders of the continent.
