Default Africa!!! dinosaurs, swamps and .. well... research

well, i'm thinkin of going to Likouala swamp in africa, this is one of the worlds least mapped areas, apart from the oceans and deep underground ovc... and i'm going there =) Mainly to research reptiles and amphibians that inhabit there, hopin to even find a few new species....fingers crossed, jus gotta finish my college course and i'm off =D
However i'm also going for another reason... there have been sightings of a number of dinosaurs in the region by the locals... now usually i'm sceptical about the whole ''monster in the woods'' thing, however i'm not completely dismissing the idea- maybe it is possible... other animals have survived 6billion years, coelocanth, birds, certain reptiles.
Anyways back to the point, just wondering if anyone knows anything about the region at all, things like terrain, locals, gangs??

I totally fear going to Africa, because of the possibility of getting a disease, and of course the crime.

That. Also, the fact that there isn't much civilization there. You'll have to be almost completely self-dependent and knowledgeable. It's not like you can just go to hospital or something if you get hurt... I hope you know what you're getting into.

Just go. Take a gun if you really feel you need to. Don't eat the soup. But seriously, you should go. Employers appreciate people who are well-traveled.

All this stuff about being afraid of Africa... it's not just one country, and how things are is very different from place to place. Some of the countries are very dodgy though, so make sure you research the ones you're interested in.

Yeah your lucky. My school does a thing where my band teacher takes a bunch of kids to a country over spring break. This year they are going to italy, but I can't afford to go.

Thats great, I'm afraid you are talking to the wrong group of people if you want to know something about the area. I hope you enjoy yourself, stay safe, and tell us all about it upon your return.

Oh, well actually im a bit late.
