This troubled country has had some unfortunate incidents with its political temperatures from its past, in addition to insecurity. The country has a high prevalence of armed bandits and groups in many parts, as well as the armed forces controlling the nation. Because of this, there is a high chance that travelers will come across armoured vehicles, attack helicopters and armed troops. The capital, Kinshasa, is particularly notorious for its crime, both in daylight and evening hours. If you are in the country, avoid taking pictures, do not trust anyone who offers you help, and avoid areas that the locals deem risky.

Because this country shares a border with Mexico, this area is one of the most dangerous areas of the country because of the infamous and constant human trafficking and drug smuggling operations. The country also has the fifth highest homicide rate in the Caribbean and South America last year, as well as other crimes like armed robberies and carjacking. Robbery is gender-neutral in the country, so carrying a money belt for your valuables and using cabs and tour companies is the best way to protect yourself.
