Boyoma Falls

Kinshasa, Congo

Once called Stanley Falls, Boyoma Falls is a long series of cataracts located along the Lualaba River. After an overall drop of 61 metres and at the end of the seventh cataract, the river merges with the Congo River. The Wagenya fishing tribe live in the region and after generations of living along this unique river, they’ve developed special methods to catch fish. You’ll see their wooden tripods in the rapids, resting in the natural holes formed in the rocks by the running water. The tripods hold baskets that serve as nets for the fishermen.
