Major Waterfalls of Central African Republic


Boali Waterfalls, southwestern Central African Republic

Obviously located in the middle of Africa based on its matter-of-fact name, CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC features several major waterfalls and river rapids. These include Les Chutes de Boali (Boali Waterfalls, pictured below), Les Chutes de Ngolo (Ngolo Waterfalls), Les Chutes de Touboutou (Touboutou Waterfalls), and Les Rapides de l'Éléphant (Elephant Rapids). Located near the city of Carnot, Touboutou Falls straddle the Mambéré River in western Central African Republic. 300 kilometers to the east, the Elephant Rapids rage along the Oubangui River and Democratic Republic of the Congo's border. Residents of Bangui — the country's national capital — can travel 50 kilometers northeast to enjoy the sight of these rapids. The Boali Waterfalls are part of another scenic paradise near Bangui. Ngolo Waterfalls are found on the Kotto River, near Hyrra Banda in the country's southeastern portion.
