Kolwezi Congo Travel
Kolwezi in the Democratic Republic of Congo is a worthwhile destination, especially in the dry months of June and September. This is by no means a comprehensive list, but if you are planning your trip to the region, you should check out this guide to motorcycles, bicycles and trucks, which contains a lot of good advice on how to prepare. For more detailed advice, Bradt Travel Guides has published a guide specifically for the overland continent called Africa Overland. It is best in December, followed by July to September and best all year round, worst in January, February, March, April and May.
If you are still afraid to board a Congolese plane and are not so worried about the cost, you can try flying with Kenyan Airways, which flies from Kinshasa to Lubumbashi and Kisangani. Note that airline flights in the Democratic Republic of Congo are among the riskiest travel deals in the world.
Other destinations of several airlines are located in the Democratic Republic of Congo, such as Kinshasa, Kisangani, Lubumbashi, Goma, Kivu, Mombasa, Nkumba and Kigali.
The main airports are Ndola Airport (NLA - FLND), which has international and domestic flights to N dola, Zambia, and is located 563 km from Kolwezi, DR Congo. Regionally, there are two major international airports in the Democratic Republic of Congo: SolweZI Airport, SLI - FLSW, which is located 459 km from the DRC and has a domestic flight to Sol Wezi in Zambie. This airport is an important hub for international flights from Kinshasa, Kisangani, Lubumbashi, Goma, Kivu, Mombasa, Nkumba and Kigali and it had and has a large number of domestic and international passenger flights.
Congolo Airport (KOO - FZRQ), 1139 km from Kolwezi, DR Congo, with domestic flights to Congolo, DR Congo. Mansa Airport, MNS - FLMA, is located 645 km from Kol Wezi in the DR Congo and has a domestic flight to Manso, Zambia. Saurimo Airport VHC - FNSA isbe 752 km from Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, isbbed in 7 52 km from Kolwesi, Dr Congo, but has no domestic flights from Sauremo to Angola.
Not for the faint-hearted is the sprawling city of Kolwezi in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), which has distinguished itself with a great nightlife, cultural offerings and music.
As in Kinshasa and other cities, taxis are often the best way to explore the sights and experience Kolwezi for yourself.
As you can see, road traffic to the larger cities is not frequent enough, and huge trucks pile up for the long journeys from Kinshasa to Pointe Noire. In areas like DR Congo, bus services are very crowded and even a bit chaotic for tourists who see this simply as part of the African experience. Many journeys in Congo are made by small vehicles, as they cannot drive on the remaining roads. Waterway transport in Congo is usually the only real option, but it is slow, as it is normally, and can even be slower than in other parts of Africa.
The air transport network in the DRC is extensive, with numerous small airlines operating flights to and from most major cities. Some airlines have started to suspend flights, although it is difficult for tour guides to advise travellers on which airlines to use, and some airlines take off and land in different parts of the country.
I would recommend that you consider crossing the Congo by land or by private ferry, as it passes through the central and eastern regions. There are ferries that take you by car across the Congo River from Congo to Brazzaville, and it is possible to find a ferry to the capital Kinshasa as well as to other major cities in the region. Frequent ferry services along the river and fast motor boats called Canots Rapides, but there is no ferry to ferry vehicles across the river.
Adventure tourists keen to travel to the Democratic Republic of Congo should contact their hotel in Kinshasa and make an invitation letter, as most visa applications require a visa application depending on their nationality. Travellers travelling on their own should consult the advice of the Embassy before travelling to the Democratic Republic of Congo.
If your passport comes from the embassy of another country, you will be informed by the embassies of neighbouring countries such as Uganda or Rwanda that you can only apply for a visa from the country of your nationality or residence. If you are lucky enough to have several entry visas before you officially leave Uganda and Rwanda, make sure before crossing the border at the DRB Immigration Office that, when you enter the Democratic Republic of Congo, you have all your documents to show that there are many checkpoints on the roads in and out of that country. In my experience, when I arrived in the DRC, I checked all the documents required for the issuance of visas in my home country and checked all of them.
