Central Africa is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of staggering natural beauty and unparalleled wildlife. Not so long ago, it was known far and wide as one of the best places to encounter gorillas in their natural habitat, and as a lot of travellers swear, butterflies in their hundreds of thousands.
Sadly, tourism has dwindled and is almost non-existent due to troubled history and political turmoil. Yet, despite this harsh reality, its people remain open and upbeat, and conversations are filled with hope and smiles. Their art reflects the dominance of both ancient kingdoms and modern governments and includes both ceremonial and spiritual functions. While you are advised against travelling to this region, here at Dilwana, you can enjoy these unique pieces from the heart of Africa – and support the communities to boot!
