"Congo Rainforest is among the largest rain forests in the world. The size of Congo is 2,345,408 square kilometres. Congo experiences large amounts of precipitation. The massive expanse of lush jungle covers most of the vast, low-lying central basin of the river, which slopes toward the Atlantic Ocean in the West. This area is surrounded by plateaus / plateaux merging into savannas in the south and southwest, by mountainous terraces in the west, and dense grasslands extending beyond the Congo River in the north.The river flows generally west from Kisangani just below Boyoma Falls, then gradually bends southwest, passing by Mbandaka, joining with he Ubangi River, and running into the Pool Malebo (Stanley Pool). Great Rift Valley, in particular the Eastern Rift, plays a key role in shaping the Congo's geography.
