Where is the Congo river located?

According to Monga Bay, which offers extensive information regarding rainforests, The Congo River -- formerly the Zaire River -- is Africa's most powerful river and the second most voluminous river in the world with a discharge of 1,500,000 cubic feet of water per second. It is the fifth longest river in the world, draining a basin of nearly 1.5 million square miles.

The river is best known for its role in history. Called the heart of darkness by Joseph Conrad, the river and surrounding rainforest have long been known as the mysterious land of pygmies, mythical beasts, dreadful plagues, and cannibals. It is a land made famous by the rigorous adventures of Stanley and Livingstone, and known as a place of brutality and violence for its past: the days of the Arab slave and ivory trade, its long history of tribal warfare; and its present: the ethnic violence and massacres of today.

It runs through former Zaire, now Congo and Angola

What countries does the River Rhine flow through?

The Rhine rises in Switzerland, to the east of the St. Gotthard massif. It flows northwards, forming the border between Switzerland and both Liechtenstein and Austria, then westwards through the Lake of Constance. At Basel it turns northwards again, form the border between France and Germany, then continues wholly in Germany until it reaches the Dutch border. There it becomes the Waal and after combining with the Maas (Meuse) it flows into the North Sea just south of Hoek van Holland.

So it flows through three countries: Switzerland, Germany and the Netherlands, but it borders 3 more, Liechtenstein, Austria and France.

How deep is the Rhine River?

It completely depends. The deepest part is at the Loreley Rocks (Felsen der Loreley). In comparison in the Rheingau it is no deeper than 1.9 meters. But, for that reason, at that point the river is 900 meters wide. Also, it's varying depending on the amount of water in the course of a year. There's flooding after a lot of rain, melt-off in the spring and low-water when it hasn't rained for a long time. So that ships can go up and down the Rhein relatively undisturbed, there are channels in the Rhein which assure there is a depth of at least 1.9 meters (as previously stated). I hope this answered your question. It's a large river.
