I've had both, well sort of. I didn't have the actual Congo, but one very much like it called the "Large Sturdy" from Suncoast gliders. It had six extra feeder doors on the front which the Congo doesn't have. It's a lovely sturdy cage, very generous in size and the doors are very nice and big. I loved the cage, but due to my personal circumstances (having trouble getting up and down for daily & weekly cleaning as well as space issues in current living arrangement (glider things outgrowing the space), I went with a Brisbane cage. I considered getting another Madagascar cage again for space reasons (I had one before the Lrg Sturdy cage and really liked it), but I'd have the same issues with it being low to the floor, it was becoming difficult for me to maintain a cage that low. So Brisbane it was, and I thought long and hard before breaking down and ordering one. I got it on sale for a great price and ended up getting the sandstone color, and I love it!!! My gliders (had a trio at the time, RIP Lulu), seemed not bothered by the change, as long as they have their wheel and food, they're golden. I usually kept two wheels in their cage, since having the Madagascar, sometimes two full-size, but most of the time one was a travel size. I have since gotten a treadmill from Spinzone Global (where all my wheels are from), and it's working fine in this cage, a regular size, cage mount wheel is in there as well and still plenty of room for other items and for them to move about.
