What have been the highlights of your time in this country? Best trips or experiences?
We have had several great experiences while at post. On one occasion we took a day-trip out to a sandbar where we met up with colleagues from Embassy Kinshasa, set up tents and had a BBQ. Another was a trip to a fancy hotel in Kintele where we enjoyed the day at the pool and spa and then spent the night. During dry season, many sandbars will pop up on the Congo River. One restaurant takes advantage of its location on the river and sets up a second “seasonal restaurant” on the sandbar. They have boats which take you over to the sandbar where food and beverage services are set up. It is a fun way to spend an afternoon! - Jul 2020
Trips to the coast and to the beach. Seeing gorillas up north (expensive!) Good friends. - Jan 2020
