Congo River. Jan 23, 2013
The Congo river is just short of 3,000 miles long and the eighth longest river in the world, with a flow rate and drainage area second only to the Amazon. It flows through savannah, swamp and dense tropical rainforest, crossing the equator twice before finally draining into the Atlantic.

The Congo has suffered horribly throughout its history, and due to generations of foreign exploitation, political instability, corruption and civil war, not to mention a prevalence of crocodiles, hippos, waterfalls and huge rapids, the river seems to have been given a wide berth. But if you're looking for a true adventure travel destination, then look no further – the Congo has it all!

I found the proud people of the Congo to be an absolute inspiration too; I believe we could all learn a great deal from their courage and resilience in the face of adversity.A cruise on the Congo River in a motorised wooden boat from Kinshasa to kisangani or from Kisangani to Kinshasa promises great of experiences, like meeting the local fishermen,pygmies and those who live on floating villages plus many more.Cant be missed.
