/trv/,

I spend hours looking at the most remote places in Africa (most often the west coast) and I just want to hear from people who have been to the most remote places on the continent.

What did you see and do, what were the people like, where were you and what made you go there ??

Thanks all !!

Spent a lot of time in Mozambique for work. Met up with a lot of friends way out in the bush as well. Every city has it's own day throughot the year with a big celebration, which were always fun as well.

People there are great, if you're fine with doing things the local style it can be cheap as fuck (Hitching rides of around 1000km for about $3, and the driver will usually offered snacks)

DRC and Sahara are last remote places.

This is what Lonely Planet has to say about the Central African Republic: "The lack of development has left large swathes of lush rainforest, which still teem with wildlife, including thousands of gorillas and elephants. Travellers can float among wild rivers into an Africa that the world thought no longer existed. As rich life looms in its darkest jungles, warmth, generosity, and pride steadfastly survive in the hearts of its people. CAR is Africa at its most raw."

Not true at all.

isn't it also in the middle of a civil war though?

Idk man, probably. But that wasn't OP's question.

Personally if I wanted to get lost in Africa I'd go to Bioko. The entire island is covered in jungle and volcanoes. It's one of the most corrupt countries on earth but Americans can go there visa-free so they wouldn't have much opportunity to shake you down.
Supposed to be good scuba diving too.
Flights from Cameroon are cheap; now if only I could get to Cameroon...

OP are you interested in the Sahara at all? I've been to Mauritania which is very sparsely populated and wild west-y. Really nice people and cool landscape. For a couple hundred euro you can hire a camel and guide and go literally anywhere.

Ugh yeah DRC is you are stupid.

The Namib desert is a pretty far out place, beware of German tourists though.
