Camping inside the courtyard with the lovely sisters, shower and toilet, close to Angolan consulate, the courtyard is also used by the 500 pre-school children during the week so there is always entertainment, they asked for 20US$/night (14,60€) but we bargained down to 10US$/night (7,30€) for two people which is the price people have paid here previously

Consulate

Consulate of Angola (Matadi)

Verified: over 3 years ago
GPS: -5.828450, 13.461630
Alt.: Unknown
As we had used up our tourist visa with the visit to Cabinda we applied for an other one at the Angolan consulate (S5 49.707 E13 27.698) in Matadi. The staff here can be quite a piece of work but in the end we were successful. The one month single entry visa costs 101US$ (73€) and takes a week to process. However if you don’t want to wait they can issue an express visa. Fees for that are not really fixed as the regulations only say that “an express fee has to be charged”. We were quoted 200US$ (146€) instead of 101US$. Marc had an ace up his sleeves though and argued that his broken wrist needed immediate looking after in Luanda. We ended up paying 150US$ (109,50€) per person and could pick up the visas about two hours later. Necessary for the application are copies of every single passport page with a visa or stamp on it as well as the main page, yellow fever certificate copy, carnet copy, car paper copy, 2 passport photos and an introduction letter stating the reason why you apply for the visa in Matadi and your intended itinerary in Angola. Note that if you are a couple you will still have to write individual cover letters!

NB See checkin where they paid nothing at all. These guys are aggressive and ask for 50000CF or $50 per international car for the maintenance of the road (which is piste and not great!). We bartered with them and brought it down to $25 after finding out they charge $50 for an international truck (hardly a Land Rover). But it proved a difficult stand off!

Great spot on a hill with fantastic view. Good flat spot. Motorbikes take the low road. You will definitely get seen by anyone taking this high road but no traffic on this road late in the day and early in the morning. Region both sides felt SAFE.

Get passport stamped here on DRC entry. MAKE SURE you got stamp at RoC exit passport control checkpoint in Tombo. We had to go back because we didn't get that RoC stamp. We had our passports stamped at Louingui... but apparently you NEED that second stamp at Tombo. BS.

There is a barrier here, first the guards requested permit from the tourist office in Moanda (or something like this). After this barrier the military requested 2000 francs as entry fee. Probably a matter of negotiation.

Requested first 25000, then 50000 francs for a foreign car/truck. Did not show any official document or receipt, but the police backed them. We were willing to pay 4000, the fee for DRC cars but there was not really room for negotiation. We were pissed and went back to Yema and took the dirt track toward the ocean and went on this road to Moanda. The dirt track was perfectly fine, we hardly ever used 4x4.

We stopped here and accidentally run in theire control. Try to avoid to stop in that big village if possible!! They guys here don't know at all how to handle tourists. They suspect us to be spys or gold diggers and didn't let us drive away for hours. The boss was drunk , we had to argue with 10 police officers arround us. They wanted to escort us to the next city for a talk with the bigger chef although we had all stamps and papers.
