      Safety in Lubumbashi

      Lubumbashi Apr 6, 2015 at 12:24 AM

      Hi! I was just accepted to join a medical mission in Lubumbashi in July and although I'm very excited, my family is very concerned with travel safety. Does anyone have an experience with this matter, and does anyone have any advice on what there is to see outside of Lubumbashi, like any worthwhile national parks for example? Thanks!
