4wds used to have to go to Kinkala then Boko then Luozi. Now they are stuck in the capital or have to turn around and go through Gabon. Due to the political situation on the south part of the country (Pool) the ROC road can be closed or dangerous sometimes. Please get real information on this rather than surfing Tripadvisor and Lonely Planet Thorntree and Century Club forums. The DRC roads due to Angola and east to Lubumbashi may not pan out for you either, so make sure you have your visas firmly in the passport for Angola if you are bound that way, and plan on a very very long drive and lots of breakdowns to reach Katanga.
Pickup from any hotel or location in either city.
