Angola visa

Our group is now 2 weeks in Matadi DRC, and there is no option to get the Angolan transit visa as they won't be issued again until after the august elections. Only option for tourists is to get the normal visa in the home country.
We will take the kinshasa lubumbashi road.

Sorry for that guys!

Anything I can do to help (info and shit) let me know.
Luckily will be quite dry but very sandy as well.
Take tons of supply from Kinshasa like cans and dry foods (I know is crazy expensive) but is your only option all the way to Lubumbashi. Rely on villagers for directions (deviations), water and help to push you out when you get stuck. Try to fix any mechanical problem as the 2500km of offroad WILL turn any weakness into a potential disaster.
Ask for food as not always is displayed.


Cheers and good luck.

It's probably too late as you are already on the road, but check this thread for good info about that route:

Bugger, in Burkina Faso at the moment, the Angolan elections thing has really messed up our plans. Any advice on shipping out of Accra to Walvis Bay?
