Just wondered if there is any news on the viability of travel through DRC?
We did this in mid 1995, on our SA - UK trip, and it was a fabulous place to travel through, albeit very hard work. By far our favourite part of the journey.
We are panning our next trip (south this time), commencing April 2003, and we would like to go through DRC in about June.
Last time, our experience was that we got mainly negative advice up front, until we were near to the country, at which point we started actually meeting people who had just travelled through, or who in turn had encountered *other* travellers who had.
Does anyone have any current information, first- or second-hand?
Also looking for information on travelling through Angola...
