Map Congo, Dem. Rep. (former Zaire) - Country Information

Map of the Democratic Republic of the Congo - The map of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, or DR Congo (formerly known by many names, including Zaire) depicts a country located in central or sub-Saharan Africa. The map of the DRC is located near the equator, which gives it very high precipitation, which accounts for the Congo Rainforest, which is the second largest in the world, after the Amazon. This large jungle occupies most of the vast central Congo River basin, which is a low-lying area which slopes down towards the west and the Atlantic Ocean. In the south and southwest of the map of the Congo, plateaus and savannahs surround the river basin. The western region of the map is quite mountainous, and the north has dense grasslands, while the east has high glaciated mountains called the Rwenzori Mountains. The northeast section of the map is part of the African Rift system, and these mountains are volcanic in nature, with high levels of volcanic activity. The map of the Congo is divided into 10 provinces, and a city-province of Kinshasa, which is the capital.
