Congo River

The Congo River, or Zaire, River is formed by the waters of the Lualaba, the upper Conger River, and its tributary the Luvua River. One of the the longest rivers in the world, the Congo flows for 2,720 miles through Zaire to Atlantic Ocean. In some parts, the Congo is from 4 to 10 miles wide, with many islands and sandbars. Because the Congo has a fairly constant flow throughout the year, it is Africa's largest potential source of hydroelectric power.
