Useful information


A visa is required for the DRC. Its price is 83 USD for a month and a single entry into the territory.

A letter of invitation to the DRC to participate in the Sultani Makutano forum may be sent to you to facilitate obtaining the visa.

NB: An airport tax of 50 US dollars is required on departure as well as a 5 dollars tax for statistics management. Remember to provide these amounts in cash!


Our airline partner is Brussels Airlines.

To facilitate your transfer between the airport and your hotel, we have provided shuttles to and from the hotel. They are free if you are staying at the hotel.

If you live in an establishment other than one of our partner hotels, it is recommended that you arrange shuttle service with your hotel as soon as you make your reservation.


The vaccine against yellow fever is also required to enter the territory. Preventive treatment against malaria is strongly recommended.


Kinshasa is a pleasant, bustling city full of restaurants and bars. Walking there alone, especially in the evening, is not recommended.

Kinshasa taxis have the particularity of being collective and of following predefined routes, like buses. To obtain an individual taxi, you must request an "express", but in this case, the price is to be negotiated before getting in the vehicle.

Our partner, the travel agency Jeffery Travel, can provide you with valuable advice if you wish to take advantage of this stay to discover the DRC.
