Direct Flights to Lubumbashi

The second largest city in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Lubumbashi is home to more than 1.3 million people. The city boasts a heady mix of old-world charm and modern African culture, attracting businesspeople, scholars and travellers from all over the world. English, Swahili and French are the three most prominent languages that are spoken in Lubumbashi, catering to both local and international visitors.

Touring the city by foot is the best way in which to soak up the vibrancy of this busy city, unless you prefer a more climate-controlled option – 4X4 vehicles are available for hire throughout the area, simplifying travel for those who are not used to the African heat. One of the more prominent tourist attractions is that of the Lubumbashi Zoo, home to numerous large cats, snakes and one of the world’s few termite collections.
