The Inga Rapids are the world's highest-volume rapids, 1.6 million cubic feet per second, thundering down the final pitch as the mighty Congo River empties into the ocean.

Reviews about CONGO: The Grand Inga Project

CONGO: The Grand Inga Project
Jason Jermane
An Amazing Odyssey through Africa!

This documentary embodies the best in river expeditions. It has all the elements of overcoming obstacles, teamwork, perseverance, & humbling transformation. I enjoyed the fact that this film is devoid of ego and reveals the hardships endured by the team of accomplished paddlers. This is not your typical whitewater film. The history of exploration on the Congo River makes for an intriguing storyline to this recent decent by Steve Fisher, Tyler Bradt, Rush Sturges, and Ben Marr. Excellent film!

Great documentary on the Inga Rapids and the prior expeditions that went before. The kayaking was amazing and rapids were insane. The logistics of just getting there were unreal too. Great movie if your adventure seeker or like expedition documentaries.
