Les Rapides

Viewpoint in Brazzaville

These wide and powerful rapids on the Congo River can be viewed on the outskirts of Brazzaville. Most people observe the rapids from the nearby bar Site Touristique Les Rapides, but the best viewing is at the other end, down the sandy track after the bridge. A taxi from the city centre costs CFA2000, or you can take a minibus to Pont Djoué from next to Institut Français du Congo.
