Visit an overgrown jungle palace, go hunting in the rain-forest with an ancient pygmy tribe and enjoy a heart-racing encounter with gorillas. In this immersive journey through the Democratic Republic of Congo, you’ll navigate river rapids in a narrow tree-trunk boat, you’ll travel through the mountains by train, and you’ll fly by helicopter into the conflicts of the east.
With the BBC’s Africa Correspondent Alastair Leithead as your guide, you’ll experience this beautiful but troubled country as it goes through significant political change. You’ll see the huge potential of the Congo for yourself, prompting you to ask how a country so rich, can remain so poor. Congo VR takes you to the story.
BBC Virtual Reality can only be viewed in a headset by those over 13. This is due to headset manufacturer guidelines. If you are between 13 and 16 you will need a parent or guardian to fill out the consent form in the email confirmation and bring it with you.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for CONGO: Try a BBC Virtual Reality Experience are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
