As a flight dispatcher, it's important to have a good understanding of the requirements for obtaining this permit, including the fact that the issuing of an overflight permit confirms that there is no political or security objection to your airline, aircraft, or country of origin/destination and that there are no outstanding navigation fees due to the ATC authority.

Travel Information :


  • Kinshasa
The capital city of the Democratic Republic of Congo, as well as one of the 11 provinces, is Kinshasa. It’s chaotic and buzzing with energy and really huge – with over ten million residents. Established by Henry Stanley in the late 19th century as a trading post it’s now likened to an African New York City.
  • Lola Ya Bonobo
Lola Ya Bonobo is a sanctuary for orphaned bonobos and one of the most popular tourist attractions in the Kinshasa area. The bonobos are hunted for bush meat, and when a mother is killed, the babies are often taken and sold on the black market as pets. The sanctuary tries to recover as many as possible so that they can live out their lives in safety.
  • Kahuzi Biega National Park
Named after the 3,000+ metre Mt. Kahuzi and the 2,700+ metre Mt. Biega this spectacular national park is located in the South Kivu Province and stretches from the Congo River basin to Bukavu. Kahuzi and Biega are extinct volcanoes that now afford some incredible hiking. It was created in 1970 in order to protect the Eastern Lowland Gorillas and just ten years later was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • Nyiragongo Volcano
The skyline of Goma in the DRC is dominated by Nyiragongo. This unbelievable, 3,000+ metre volcano last erupted in 2011, destroying up to 15% of the surrounding land and leaving over 120,000 homeless. Erupting 34 times in the last 130 years, Nyiragongo is located at the junction where the African tectonic plate is breaking. The landscape around Goma is striking, with black solidified lava so wide that the place looks like an above ground coal mine
  • Virunga National Park
Located along the borders of Rwanda and Uganda, Virunga National Park is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. As the country’s oldest national park, it’s also the most biologically diverse. You’ll find lava plains, savannas, forests, valleys, active volcanoes, swamps, and even glacier peaks in the Rwenzori Mountains. Roughly 25% of endangered mountain gorillas call the park home, and Virunga is the only park to have three of the four great apes in one place.
  • Lake Kivu
Straddling the border between the DRC and Rwanda, Lake Kivu is the sixth largest lake in Africa. One of a series of freshwater lakes in the region, Lake Kivu offers lovely scenic drives between the towns that dot her shores. From Cyangugu to Gisenyi, the gently winding road affords breathtaking vistas as you leisurely make your way. Tons of banana and eucalyptus trees line the road and the locals will pause and wave as you pass by.
  • Garamba National Park
This national park is filled with unending grasslands and savannahs. And these are filled with elephants, giraffes, hippos, black rhinos, and white rhinos. Garamba National Park is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site and an amazing sanctuary for several endangered species. It’s rare to see so many different classifications of large mammals sharing the same space and that makes a visit to the park an absolute must.
  • Brazzaville
“Brazza” is the more laid back and accessible version of Kinshasa. It’s both unassuming and low-key and many who visit say it’s one of their favourite places in the DRC. Due to the civil war which began in 1997, the city’s infrastructure is a bit out-dated but new construction is happening and you’ll now find hotels and restaurants of good quality.
  • Salonga National Park
Salonga is both the DRC and Africa’s largest tropical rainforest. In this UNESCO World Heritage Site you’ll find several endangered species including the Congo peacock, dwarf chimpanzees, forest elephants, and the slender-snouted crocodile. The park is quiet isolated and you must take a boat to reach it. This vital ecosystem is so large that it plays an important role in climate regulation for the entire country.
  • Okapi Wildlife Reserve
This UNESCO World Heritage Reserve is unique for the large variety of primates and exotic birds that call it home. There are incredibly opportunities for trekking to some even more incredible waterfalls within the reserve. The landscape along the Epulu and the Ituri rivers is simply stunning. Also calling the reserve home are the pygmy nomad tribes of the Efe and Mbuti hunters.
