Dealing with homesickness in the Democratic Republic of Congo

Hello everyone,

Being an expat in the Democratic Republic of Congo can turn out to be a wonderful human, social or professional adventure... with potential moments of nostalgia and homesickness along the way.

What are your personal tips to prevent homesickness?

How do you deal with such feelings?

Are there shops or stores offering products from your home country in the Democratic Republic of Congo? Or maybe venues with music and ambiance from your homeland?

Thanks for sharing your experience,


Keep urself busy as much as possible.. thats the only best way to overcome homesickness. After office hours there's nothing much to do in Congo. its quite obvious that one starts missing his / her home. Join Gym, start doing yoga, try cooking... make friends.. hangout with them. thats all..! :)
