Lubumbashi

 

Development

There has been much development in Lubumbashi and the surrounding area over the last few years.

Infrastructure such as street lighting, tarmacing of roads and installation of traffic lights around the city centre all make it an easier place to get around!

The introduction of internationally connected cash points also makes accessing money from accounts outside of the country a lot easier for international visitors to the city, although many places don’t yet accept visa and debit cards.

Developments such as La Plage make for a pleasant afternoon out where you can relax next to the lake with a coffee, go for a relaxing swim or make sandcastles on the beach!  The proposed Luano city complex close to the airport will include housing, a new golf course, shops, leisure and offices.
