Located 130 kilometers (c. 90 miles) from Kinshasa, an early morning pick-up will take you through spectacular scenery to the Zongo Waterfalls. Zongo Park provides a lovely setting. This goes deep into the Congolese rainforest and into the heart of darkness you’ve always imagined. Raw and real and wonderful and relaxing. An excellent break from Kinshasa with exceedingly beautiful scenery, merely 4 hours away by driving, but worlds away in feeling. Enjoy! Includes: -A Comfortable 4×4 Drive vehicle with air conditioning, round trip-English or a French tour guide to the falls and the forests (you can trek and walk, or drink and talk, as much as you want)-WiFi Access from the Lodge if you need to do some work while on your break.
Powerful and photogenic, Zongo Falls gush out of a 65 m (213 ft) tall cliff and crash down through the jungle canopy, creating fabulous clouds and spectacular rainbows. Set amidst lush greenery, the falls make for a great photo opportunity. Head here if you’re looking to get out of Kinshasa for the weekend, but keep in mind that a 4WD vehicle is required to reach this picturesque spot.
