Lubumbashi

 

Travel

International travel to Lubumbashi has never been easier with 3 international flights coming into Lubumbashi International Airport.

Roads around the city have been vastly improved over recent years which makes getting around alot easier.

there is a good road connecting Lubumbashi to the Zambian border and to Likasi, there are currently plans to improve the road from Likasi to Kolwezi and others including the road to Kasenga are in a good condition.

Many people get around the city easily using the ubiquitous taxi buses and taxi cabs.  Unless there is a heavy rain, the roads generally keep moving and don’t reach the grid lock situations that are found in many other equivalent sized cities.  It is not recommended to take photos in public places such as the airport without prior authorisation.
