The Host Country Area, Geography, and Climate Last Updated: 5/11/2004 AM The Democratic Republic of the Congo straddles the equator in the heart of central Africa and shares a border with nine other countries: the Republic of the Congo, the Central African Republic, Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, Zambia, and Angola.
Congo has access to the Atlantic Ocean on the west through a strip of territory that narrows to 13 miles wide at the coast. The Congo River is 2,900 miles long and is the second largest in the world in terms of area drained, flow, and navigable length.
Surrounding the basin are mountainous terraces on the west, plateaus merging into savannas to the south and southeast, and dense grasslands toward the northwest.
