Western Congolian forest-savanna mosaic

WWF Abstract

As the mighty Congo River makes its way to the coast, it passes through the Western Congolian Forest-Savanna Mosaic and two countriesÂ’ capitals: Kinshasa, capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and Brazzaville, capital of the Republic of Congo. Large dissected plateaus frame the lower Congo River, separated by spectacular canyons that plunge down to depths of 980 ft (300 m). Around the river, and extending further south into Angola, this ecoregion is a mix of dry and moist forests, savanna, and grasslands.
