Aerial view of the Epulu River, in the north-easterly Ituri areaAlso known as the Republique Democratique du Congo, the Democratic Republic of the Congo resides in Central Africa, where it straddles the line of the equator, with around one-third being located to the north, and the remaining two-thirds to the south. This country is almost entirely landlocked and lies directly to the east of the similarly named country, the Republic of the Congo.

To the west, a very narrow area of land bisects the tip of Angola, alongside the Congo River, and borders the South Atlantic Ocean. The country itself is divided into a total of 25 separate provinces, with Kinshasa being the capital city. Significant Congalese ports and harbours include those of Banana, Boma, Bukavu, Bumba, Goma, Kalemie, Kindu, Kisangani, Kuba, Matadi and Mbandaka.
