Congo features A 170-kilometer-long maritime frontage and is located in the heart of the second largest river basin on the planet: the Congo River and its tributaries. On its own territory there are no fewer than thirty rivers and rivers navigable all year round: Kouilou, Niari, Bouenza, Alima, Nkeni, Lefini, Sangha, Likouala, etc.
