If you are staying in or visiting the Kisantu area, this is definitely worth a visit. The botanical gardens offer beautiful walks in lush nature. They also have a good restaurant. Great with kids!

The Botanical Garden of Kisantu is the most beautiful botanical garden in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It was founded over a century ago by a missionary. The entrance fee is about $5 per person. Inside, you will find thousands of trees, thousands of plants, a school and the best restaurant of Kisantu. I advise you to head first to the restaurant, to order whatever is fresh (chicken, captain fish, eggplants, etc.), tell them when you come back (for example two hours later), and then go for a visit at your own pace. Don't miss the crocodile and the two monkeys!

I felt sorry for the crocodile but the garden itself is very lovely and absolutely worth several hours if in Kisantu.

We were a party of 10 so I booked a table at the restaurant in the Jardin Botanique a few days beforehand. The staff arranged for us to sit round one long table and served a first class buffet. The shady restaurant looks out on to the garden, so it's a really great place to have a meal.

We went for a lightning tour with a large group, and we really enjoyed it. The gardens are large and really you should just look around. The place is not perfect and could do with more money but it has a dreamy quality with some lovely sights. You could wander for hours easily and just enjoy the quiet. The Director is a gifted guide, and the restaurant is large and another attraction. It is not 1,5 hour from Kinshasa (unless you've got a F1 car) but more like 2,5 hour but very worth the visit nonetheless. Do visit
