The Congo River formerly known as the Zaire River flows through the central part of Africa continuing west ward finally emptying in to the Atlantic Ocean near the seaside resort of Muanda. The river is the second longest after the Nile and flows for a length of 4,374 km (2,718 miles); the river ecosystem has given rise to one of the largest rainforests on Earth.

The river flow is almost evenly divided on both sides of the Equator ensuring that the river flow remains stable throughout the year. The river derives its name from the ancient Kingdom of Kongo which was established in the region situated at the mouth of the river.

The Congo River has several sources situated in the mountains in Eastern Africa as well as Lake Tanganyika and Lake Mweru. The entire length of the Congo River is navigable making it an ideal trade route connecting much of Central Africa with the Western coast.
