Watch - Water and Global Change - The Congo Basin
Follow this link :
It drains an area over 4.1 million km-2 (1.6 million mi-2). The river and its tributaries makes it an important transportation route across central Africa. However numerous islands, as well as water falls, makes stretches of the river un-navigable. The river has three clear sections, the upper reaches are characterised by lakes, waterfalls and rapids, the middle has a series of Cataracts which end at the Stanley Falls. Finally the lower Congo divides into 2 branches forming large lakes called the Malebo (Stanley) Pool.
