I hope I will not regret from writing this post.
I have discovered an amazing place a few kilometres away from La Gombe.
“Les pieds dans l´eau” opened in Summer 2015. After a lot of work, the Congolese lady who runs it, succeeded in creating one of the nicest places to go in Kinshasa. I can say that so far, it is my favourite one! Thank you Thea and John!!!
I discovered “Les pieds dans l´eau” thanks to a French couple friend of mine, J&J… Mercii!
So, we hit the road on Sunday morning and arrived to this beautiful spot which is 30 mins away from la Gombe (without traffic jam!).
You can get change in rustic “changing rooms” and have a bath in its artificial lake with white sand, made from the water that flows from the mountain.
Things you need to know before going!
They offer a package at 24000 FC for adults and 10000FC for children up to 12 year.
The package includes entry, swimming and buffet. Drinks, liboke and fruit (when available) are to be payed separate! AND PLEASE NOTE: No picnic is allowed.
Therefore, please note they do not offer ‘entry only’ anymore .
In the BBQ you can eat grilled beef and chicken, fried banana, tomato & cucumber salad, rice, pundu, potatoes salad… Believe me when I say that the food was really nice!
And the question is…Where is it?
Address: Follow the road to N´SELE. Just in front off KIBOMANGO, after the village of SOS children.
PLEASE DO NOT TELL MANY PEOPLE ABOUT THIS PLACE! 😉
