Consulate of Angola (Pointe Noire)

Verified: 18 days ago
GPS: -4.791830, 11.859220
Alt.: 0.0 masl
We went to the consulate in Pointe Noire to try to apply for a transit visa for Cabinda so we would not use up our tourist visa. They were not unhelpful but told us that you are only allowed to have one active visa at a time. However an other traveller who got his tourist visa together with us in Accra was able to get a transit visa here just two weeks before. We also heard from other travellers who got a tourist visa issued here without invitation letters so if you do not want to go through the hassle of driving from Ghana to Angola in 2 months (visa validity) then Pointe Noire and Matadi would be your best bets.

Hotel Hippocampe

Verified: 9 months ago
GPS: -4.273080, 15.277665

This hotel welcomes overlanders since ages! You can park and pitch for FREE, and use a bathroom with cold shower accessible with a key. Very kind hosts! Located in the center of Brazzaville, close to many useful embassies. Oh, and they have an excellent Vietnamese/Asian restaurant with very reasonable prices! Bringing pets is not a problem, but when we were here there were 3 dogs, from which one was aggressive against our dog. We just kept ours inside whenever the other ones were unlocked.

Get carnet stamped here when using the road to/from Congo to Lwozi, DRC. There is no customs at the Tombo border crossing. We also had to see the police across from customs whom took our details down. Customs refused to give our carnet back until we paid 2000cfa, which we were told after he stamped it. Unfortunately we paid.....

The president elections were in town, so most hotels and other accommodation was not available. We did find this little gem of a place, with a very friendly hostess. Beautiful rooms, decorated nicely with comfortable beds and pillows. Tv, fan and A/C in rooms. Our air-con wasn't working so we reduced the price from 20000CFA to 15000CFA (£17.50) a night.
