Tour Itinerary:

Our expedition covers the 1000 kilometers between Mbandaka and Kisangani, which is 2/3 of the largest navigable portion of the Congo river. Upstream, just beyond Kisangani, navigability is limited by a series of rapids, home of the world famous Wagenia Fisheries, extending over a total length of nearly 100 kilometers. Downstream, just beyond Kinshasa, navigability is limited by another series of rapids. Over a distance of 300 kilometers, the river drops 265 meters to reach the sea port of Matadi. Both unnavigable sections are contoured by a railway in order to overcome natures barriers. The expeditions are being operated both upstream, from Mbandaka to Kisangani, and downstream, from Kisangani to Mbandaka.
