Considering this, why is the River Congo important?
The Congo is an important navigational system in Africa. In the Democratic Republic of the Congo only the section from Ilebo to Kinshasa is still important, because it constitutes the river link (the other link being a railway between Kinshasa and Matadi) used to transport the copper production of Katanga to the coast.
What kind of animals live in the Congo River?
The Congo Basin's rivers, forests, savannas, and swamps teem with life. Many endangered species, including forest elephants, chimpanzees, bonobos and lowland and mountain gorillas live here.
How deep is the river Zambezi?
The Luangwa and the Kafue are the two largest left-hand tributaries of the Zambezi. The Kafue joins the main river in a quiet deep stream about 180 metres (590 ft) wide.
