The River Congo is not totally navigable due to rapids, but it is still a major trading and transportation artery for the Republic of Congo and neighbouring countries; a journey into the heart of Africa itself.

The French explorer and colonial administrator in Africa, Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza, of France, first visited the area between 1879 and 1880.

The Italian-born, naturalised Frenchman signed treaties with local rulers, effectively placing the territory under French protection and putting in motion the establishment of French Equatorial Africa.

In 1884, Pierre Paul Francois Camille Savorgnan de Brazza founded the city of Brazzaville.

Brazzaville was the main city of the French (Middle) Congo and became the seat of government for the federation, and the capital of Congo after independence.

The French failed in attempts to tie their territories together after the Second World War, and began to grant them independence.

In 1960 the Middle Congo became the independent Republic of Congo.
