Central Africa is a region of Africa.

Countries[edit]

Central Africa regions
Angola
Former Portuguese colony which went through a brutal civil war. Now largely safe, but has been surprisingly slow to appear on the tourist radar
Cameroon
Sometimes referred to as Africa in Miniature, the terrain includes rain forest, desert plains, mountains and high plateau.
Central African Republic
Dense jungle in the south and semi arid in the Sahelian north, this very unstable country is very much off the radar for visitors.
Democratic Republic of the Congo
Huge, blessed with incredible natural wealth and beauty, culturally diverse, and is developing extremely fast though it's still a quite poor country.
Equatorial Guinea
Perhaps one of the continent's most corrupt country, where massive oil wealth is confiscated by a thuggish government, is not a terribly safe place to travel, but it has great beaches, laid-back beach bars, and locals speak Spanish.
Gabon
Has escaped the strife afflicting other Central African states; rich in oil and mineral reserves and a high biodiversity.
Republic of the Congo
Huge tracts of forest with a small population mean great potential for eco-tourism, but the country is still to fully recover from a terrible war in the 1990s
São Tomé and Príncipe
Tiny islands in the Gulf of Guinea
South Sudan
The world's newest country, split off from warring neighbor Sudan in July 2011
