The River Congo. The discovery, exploration and exploitation of the world’s most dramatic river.

£10.00

This great river rises in the highlands of Katanga.It flows north and then in a gigantic arc that twice crosses the Equator westwards till it debouches into the Atlantic 3000 miles from its source.It is the 5th.longest river in the world.It is called the Congo.And ever since its discovery 500 years ago by Portuguese buccaneers it has seemed to symbolise more than any other aspect of the dark continent the myth and the magic,the savagery and the grandeur, that is Africa.
