    The hike is short, but very intensive. Don't take it lightly, look on the elevation gain vs distance. Don't take much on you back, take a porter as you will support the local community.

    There's nothing around there. I truly mean it. The roads are very sandy, making progress slow. People around there have access to electricity by buying batteries. Villages cut off from the outside world, watching the las...

    The road up until entering West-Kasai is utter shite. It becomes slightly better after that, but is still far from flawless. I was there right after the end of the rainy season and there was Chinese sponsored maintenance...

    The N1 up to Kikwit is near flawless, but becomes worse by the mile heading east. At the point where I left the N1 towards Gungu the road surface showed some serious signs of detoriation, by Western standards, meaning th...

    Same as before, towards the end the roads improve ever so slightly, but they're still not for fast progress. Some water crossings, so prepare yourself to get your feet wet. I could have made it farther, but at this point...

    I tried to go to Gouffre to Loukwila, I arrived at the barrier but didn't want to pay $50 for the visit. The entry is $50, no matter if you are alone or a group of 100 people. The roads are horrible. Very soft sand ov...

    The day started in the lovely mission in Bolobo, this was probably the hardest day in Congo when it comes to navigating. You can't trust maps or OSM because of collapsed bridges and roads consumed by swamps which make th...

    The N1 is still dusty east of Tshikapa, I thought it couldn't be much worse so I left it as quickly as possible. I was wrong. The road turns difficult, it might be fun for people who really enjoy sand, which I don't.

    The road conditions started to improve the day before, to the east of Mutshatsha. There where those massive potholes; 3m wide, 5m long, 1m deep. I almost got swallowed by one because I didn't see it with the rising sun i...
