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.

How do you get from Kinshasa International Airport to the city centre?

N’Djili International Airport, or Kinshasa International Airport, offers multiple transportation options for visitors wanting to get to the city centre. A taxi is an easy choice, and the drive will take just over an hour. While Kinshasa doesn’t have much of a public bus system, you’ll find several private bus companies that travel to and from the airport, with various stations and stops around the city. While renting a car is possible, the car rental companies and locations are sparse, and the congested city streets are difficult for out-of-country visitors to navigate.

What are some things to do in Kinshasa?

Kinshasa is a bustling city with plenty of attractions, restaurants, and shopping choices. One great thing about the Dominican Republic of Congo is how the country has preserved its wildlife. As a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Kahuzi-Biega National Park is an unforgettable place to visit. It has various hiking trails and draws outdoor adventurers from all over the world. In this park, visitors can see eastern lowland gorillas, African elephants, and antelope, among others.

Downtown Kinshasa is a highly populated place booming with artistic inspiration. 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. The Bonobo Sanctuary and Orphanage is ideal for groups who want to meet these interesting and active creatures. The nearby lake is the place for relaxing boat rides, and the restaurant located in the area allows you to rest with a delicious meal after an active day.

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.
