How long is the flight to the Democratic Republic of the Congo from the UK?

The actual travel time from the UK to the Democratic Republic of the Congo will vary depending on a few factors. One of the most important is which airport your flight departs. On average, the flight time is 10h 25m, but some flights can take as long as 33h if there are several stopovers along the way. There are several airports in the UK that offer either connecting flights to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, but the most common and the largest is London Heathrow. Others include Birmingham and Aberdeen, as well as Bristol Airport. There are three international airports in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, but the most frequently used is Kisagani Bangoka International Airport in Kinshasa. The others are Maya Maya International in Brazzaville, and Goma Airport in Goma.

Which cities offer direct flights to the Democratic Republic of the Congo from the UK?

Unfortunately, there are no direct flights currently offered from the UK to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. However, there are several options that offer only a single stopover, which minimizes travel time while also offering financial savings. However, be aware that even a single stopover can add a substantial amount of travel time to the trip. For instance, traveling from London Heathrow to Kinshasa aboard RwandAir with one stopover at Kigali International Airport will require 16h of travel time. Flights with two stopovers can take even longer.

What is the best way to get around the Democratic Republic of the Congo?

The best way to get from point to point within the DRC is by air, with small airstrips and private planes being the most common. There is a reliable rail link that connects Kinshasa and Matadi, but others should be avoided. If you choose to rent a vehicle, 4-wheel drive is a must, particularly if you’ll be visiting during the rainy season, as most roads in the nation are still dirt. Also note that travelers should take care to avoid areas of danger and armed conflict throughout the DRC. Finally, travel down the Congo river can also be relatively reliable, although costly.

What are some things to do in the Democratic Republic of the Congo?

Most of the things to do when visiting the Democratic Republic of the Congo will be related to wilderness areas, wildlife, and natural wonders.
