Kinshasa is the capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (not to be confused with the Republic of the Congo), and it is a huge city. A good portion of the city borders the Congo River, which offers some pretty adventurous white water rafting for those interested. The official language spoken in the Congo is French since the French once settled in the area.

There are a lot of interesting places to visit in the Congo, so naturally, you’ll need a place to stay in order to see everything you want to see. With that in mind, here are the top 10 Airbnb rentals in Kinshasa, for you to check out.
