Congo River

At 2,920 miles, the Congo River ranks as the world’s 9th longest river. It is one of the African continent’s longest rivers, second only to the mighty Nile River. The Congo River winds through the African terrain, crossing the equator twice, once in each direction. It is also the world’s deepest river with depths of over 700 feet in some spots. The Congo begins in the highlands of northeastern Zambia and eventually flows into the Atlantic Ocean in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The river is home to over 4000 islands, some of which are up to ten miles long. Source: PrimaryFacts.com
