The Democratic Republic of the Congo is a dangerous country to visit. The largest UN peacekeeping presence in the world is in Congo, with significant concentrations of troops even in Kinshasa. The U.S. State Department issued an updated travel warning on Dec. 23, 2016, advising extreme caution to U.S. travelers, especially anywhere outside Kinshasa. Only people well-acquainted with travel in such countries and situations should consider tranferring to this site.
