Kinshasa, the capital and largest city of the Democratic Republic of Congo on the African continent, is also one of the eleven regions of the country. The city, which has the status of the Capital Region, is located on the banks of the Congo River, which defines the border with the Republic of Congo in this region.
Kinshasa, formerly the capital of Zaire and the largest city with a population of 13 million, was established on the south bank of the Congo River, 560 km inland from where the river empties into the Atlantic Ocean. The city, which has the Livigstone waterfall in the south, was ruled by the King of Belgium II for many years. Although it uses the name "Léopoldville" after Leopold, it has been called Kinshasa since 1967. It is the most French-speaking city in the world after Paris and the third most populated city in Africa after Cairo and Lagos. Kinshasa, separated by the Congo River, and Brazzaville, the capital of the Republic of Congo, are the closest capitals in the world to each other with these locations. The generally friendly people of Kinshasa speak better French than neighboring Congo, which, despite being a Belgian colony, is a French colony.
Places to visit
In addition to the magnificent Congo Nerhri, which divides the city into two, Kinshasa is a region frequently preferred for activities such as natural wonder forests, safari, wildlife watching, forest excursions and camping. The most important of these, the Okapi Wildlife Area, is a gateway to the untouched rainforest. It is possible to have a unique experience by camping in the area where the Pygmies, one of the first natives of Central Africa, and their local life can be observed. Chutes de Lukia is another natural wonder of the city. It is a region where lakes are densely located and expanded, in the region where facilities such as equipment rental and restaurant services are available. The most interesting experience here is the breeding ground where you can see bonobo chimpanzees up close. Lac de Ma Vallé, a very magnificent lake, is a region surrounded by rainforests and can be described as a natural wonder. Kisantu Botanical Gardens, where tree species from all over the world and more than a century old are located, also allow swimming with the streams within its borders. Zongo Falls in Lac de Ma Valle, Zoo, Boboto Center, Laurent Kabila's Tomb and Kinsuka District are among the places to visit in the city.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo, the 3rd largest country in Africa, consists of over 200 African ethnic groups. While around 214 languages are used in the country, the official language is French since it was a colony of Belgium for many years. Apart from the Bantu tribe, which makes up the majority of the population of the country where Lingal, Ciluba, Swahili and Congo languages are widely spoken, there are also Christians in the city, and most of those who belong to this religion belong to the Catholic sect. The Ethnological Museums of prehistoric times, located in the capital Kinshasa and located within the University of Kinshasa, are among the places to visit in terms of historical values.
Gombe, one of the main boulevards of Kinshasa, is very lively, especially at night. There are many options along this street to listen to music known as Congolese jazz. Congo's famous music "ndombolo" melodies almost echo in the ears while walking around the streets during the daytime. Marce de Valeurs is the main bazaar of the city. It is possible to discover the colorful African culture at the stalls here. Académie des Beaux Arts, the city's academy of fine arts, is an art venue where many famous African artists exhibit their works and where the most original works reflecting modern African art meet with visitors. Watching Brazzaville Congo, which is on the opposite bank of the Congo River with its magnificent view, feeling the African magic in the streets of the city, participating in safari and forest excursions are some of the activities to be done in Kinshasa.
Eating and drinking
In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, "moambe", which means eight and consists of nuts, rice, chicken, peanuts, fish, hot pepper sauce, banana and cassava leaves, is known as the national dish of the country. "vitalo", a local drink produced in the country, and palm wine, which you can taste in most African countries, are among the must-try items. However, tropical fruits and cocktails made from them are also very popular. It is possible to taste "foufou" and "chikwange", which are also among the local delicacies, in the restaurants of the city's Lac de Ma Vallé and Chutes de Lukia regions.
