The Zongo Falls are located in Bas-Congo at 130 km from Kinshasa. The falls are simply spectacular and that's probably one of the top destinations in Democratic Republic of Congo.Water charges forth from the mountains of Bas Congo's equatorial forests, the former territory of Stanley's expedition, and falls on rocks 65 meters through the jungle canopy to the ground.Located 130 kilometers (c. 90 miles) from Kinshasa, an early morning pick-up will take you through spectacular scenery to the Zongo Waterfalls. Zongo Park provides a lovely setting. This goes deep into the Congolese rainforest and into the heart of darkness you've always imagined. Raw and real and wonderful...and relaxing.The first time I went, not much planning was involved. We basically decided on a Wednesday, reserved on the Thursday, paid on the Saturday, bought food and drinks from the then newly opened Shoprite, and left in the infamous Landcruiser*. On our way there we saw a great market where we bought lots of fresh vegetables. One of our group, a tiny British chica in DRC for a few months, kept getting asked how old she was. We finally asked the villagers how old they thought she was and they said three! So we burst out laughing, pointing out actual three year olds and asking if they really thought our friend was the same age as those kids. The villagers immediately started giggling, and we thought we’d gotten somewhere until the leader of the group, a very sweet elderly woman, while still giggling said “no! you’re right. She must actually be 12. ”
