City overview

With one of the world’s great musical communities, delicious food, wonderful colonial era architecture and natural beauty on its doorstep, Kinshasa is a superb destination.

One of the first things that visitors will notice is the presence of music wherever they go. Walk the streets and marketplaces, and you will pass endless groups of musicians playing the DRC’s many musical styles, from rumba to soukous.

Kinshasa is also paradise for nature lovers. The forests and plains around the Congolese capital city are filled with exotic species like okapi and leopards, and there are plenty of specialist tour companies who will transport visitors to the best sighting grounds. Sustainable tourism is another growing area, and few eco-tourism projects are as rewarding as the Okapi Conservation Project.

Another local attraction is the majestic River Congo. Rent sturdy boats and sail down the river, stopping on the banks to enjoy a delicious Congolese barbecue meal, or just drift and fish in the placid currents.

Kinshasa is also a fabulous destination for arts and crafts lovers, with the city possessing one of the world’s great markets in the marché des voleurs – which will be a great place to find works by the DRC’s many accomplished local painters.

No travellers to the city should miss out on the many delicious local dishes as well. Sample freshly caught and cooked shrimp from the Congo River, cooked in a spicy sauce or head to one of the many high quality international restaurants.

Getting around Kinshasa

The city has a small official bus service but an enormous network of informal taxis and buses that will get you wherever you need to go cheaply. A little French can go a long way in finding out the best routes to take, and where to get off. Visitors can also book taxis for the day, and it is advisable to do so via your hotel or a trusted local.

Getting from the Airport to the City

Flights to Kinshasa arrive at N’Djilli Airport (FIH), which is an easy journey to the centre of town with a little planning ahead. Don’t turn up without asking your hotel if they can pick you up, as most resorts and city centre hotels will do this as a matter of course. There should be shuttle buses to city centre as well, and there will be a crowd of eager taxis as well. Just remember to negotiate a price before leaving.

  • When is the best time to fly to Kinshasa?

    As a tropical destination, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo has some sweltering times of year with temperatures soaring to 30 degrees Celsius. Kinshasa also has some times that are extremely wet, generally the months of March, April and November, so if possible, try to book flights to Kinshasa in the “shoulder” seasons for the best sightseeing conditions. Between May and September, the city will be cooler and less humid, and discounted accommodation and cheap flights to Kinshasa will be found in April and October. No matter what time of year you decide to book your flights to Kinshasa, you won’t be short of lively nightlife entertainment. When the sun goes down, party at venues like VIP Bar or head to the riverfront district of Kinkole, with its many restaurants. On some nights, visitors can also treat themselves to a sporting spectacle, with the acrobatics on offer at Kinshasa’s judo halls.

The city hosts numerous festivals throughout the year, and the craft market is worth the visit. The Congo River runs right through the area, and visitors can take a boat ride. In the centre of the city, you’ll also find local cafes that offer tasty treats and delicacies. Bonobos and the nearby lakes offer visitors a chance to get up close and personal with nature. Not only does this area offer a scenic landscape that provides the best backdrops for photographs, but it is also full of wildlife.
