Chutes de Lukaya

Lake in Democratic Republic of Congo

A great day trip from Kinshasa, the Chutes de Lukaya have a wonderful natural setting, a decent restaurant (open at the weekend only), natural lakes to swim in and rapids that swell to an impressive size and speed during the rainy season. It's a favourite weekend haunt of expats, so the SUV count is high. It's an hour's drive from Kinshasa.
