Lubumbashi is the third largest city in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), and forms the heart of the country's copper mining industry. While it might not be your typical tourist destination, the city boasts various interesting things to see and do. When visiting Lubumbashi, be careful when taking pictures. Photography is prohibited and can result in a significant fine or a day behind bars. When snapping away, do so from your car and watch out for militar and police. Rather hire a driver then drive yourself. Traffic can be hectic, and 'visitors' often end up paying up when involved in an accident (even if it is not your fault).
