Central African Republic Driving Advice and Car Hire Info
Driving In Central African Republic
The UK Foreign office website shows a full map of red for C.A.R. Thats Red for don’t go under any circumstances. They advise against all but essential travel to the corridor covering the airport to the centre of Bangui. If you are contemplating driving in C.A.R therefore you really need to be well aware of the situation in the country before you set off.Check the FCO site or that of your own Government and other resources locally.
You may find local travel difficult especially during the wet season May to November. Roads are poorly maintained and most require a four-wheel drive vehicle. You should keep a private supply of fuel available if possible and carry supplies with you if travelling outside Bangui.Illegal road blocks operate throughout the country and you may be forced to hand over money or possessions in order to continue your journey. You should also be aware of indiscriminate and violent attacks on travellers in remote areas.
Although I try and keep the information in the site updated as much as possible, in a rapidly moving world, situations can change daily. Therefore please use the site as an approximate guide, and in conjunction with other resources in order to form your view on driving conditions, roads, safety etc.
