Cash in Congo

I am going on holiday to Kinshasa for two weeks this Easter. Can someone advise me as to the ATM scene in Kinshasa? Also how readily are TCs accepted? What do you think the best way to carry enough cash is for two weeks.

Many thanks

Use USD Travellers checks and keep some cash, keep in small denominations and avoid $100 notes. Change money at major Banks, be very very (very) wary walking around, although exchange rates at hotels will probably not be good I personaly would change money at the hotel, much safer. Looking forward to your report from Kinshasa!
