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

How did the river Thames get its name?

Thames is derived from middle English Temes which itself comes from the Celtic Temasis meaning dark. The "h" was added in the 14th century giving it a Greek look when the Celts were incorrectly believed to have come from Greece (there is a Greek river Thyamis). It is pronounced phonetically - Temz.

Thames Head, which is believed to be the source, is located near Cirencester in Gloucestershire. There is some doubt about whether this is the "true" source of the river several others having a claim (Trewsbury Mead and Severn Springs).

Where is the Snowy River located?

The Snowy River is a major river in south-eastern Australia. It originates on the slopes of Mount Kosciuszko, Australia's highest mainland peak, draining the eastern slopes of the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales, before flowing through the Snowy River National Park in Victoria and emptying into Bass Strait. Up until the mid 20th century, the river was notable for its high volume of fresh water, wide reach and large rapids.

Where is the source of the River Thames?

The source is usually given as Thames Head, which is about one mile north of Kemble, near Lechlade and Circencester in Gloucestershire, England.

The Thames rises in the Cotswolds at Trewsbury Mead, 108.5 metres (356 feet) above sea level, though you have to use your imagination to a fair degree as for most of the year there is no sign of water. The source is marked by a solitary stone with the inscription:

The Conservation of the River Thames

1857 -1974

This Stone was Placed Here to Mark the

Source of the River Thames

However, the source of the Thames is disputed. The Environment Agency (and its predecessors), the Ordnance Survey and most authorities now accept that Trewsbury Mead is the source but others hold that the true source of the Thames is at Seven Springs, some eleven miles further north and a little to the south of Cheltenham. Officially this is the source of the River Churn, a tributary of the Thames that joins at Cricklade. The stream that flows from Trewsbury Mead has been called the Thames throughout recorded history. Similarly, the river from Seven Springs has been called the Churn from earliest times, giving rise to the names of the villages of North and South Cerney and to Cirencester (Corinium) itself. But this is an argument that can never be fully settled.
