Central African Republic

Getting around

Overcrowded 24-seater minibuses connect Bangui with all major towns. Trucks and pick-ups are also a popular way to travel; their prices are similar to minibus fares. Some main roads are sealed, but pockmarked with wheel-swallowing holes. During the dry season, the dirt roads to major towns and the Cameroon and Chad borders are OK, but when the rains begin they become very muddy and can be closed for days.
