Journey to Congo BRAZZAVILLE, an unpublished destination for tourism.
Malaki Live is “going to Africa not to sympathize with lions, crocodiles, elephants or giraffes, but to fraternize with human beings!”. It is a chance of learning a different culture. The journey is based upon the principles of responsible tourism, which is about tourists making environmentally friendly, sustainable, ethical and respectful choices when travelling and minimising the negative impact of tourism.

The program of the journey has a margin of flexibility and it may be modified from time to time due to the tourists’ group exigences, or to momentary unavailability of the guesting communities, or to variations of social and environmental conditions that might happen right before/during the staying.
Therefore each journey turns out to be unique!
