The climate of Mbandaka (Democratic Republic of the Congo)
Mbandaka is located in the Equateur province and used to be known as Coquilhatstad/Coquilhatville. The city was founded on the banks of the Congo River by the explorer Stanley. Stanley founded the city directly on the equator and marked the place with a rock. During Belgian colonial times one of the most beautiful collections of botanic plants could be found here. Unfortunately this collection was destroyed during conflicts. The Hutu refugees were brutally massacred in the 1990s. Mbandaka has a tropical rainforest climate. Precipitation is not evenly spread out over the year. Precipitation figures are slightly lower in January and February. However, precipitation figures during these months are still high enough to classify the climate as a tropical rainforest climate. Temperatures are constantly high all year round which is very beneficial for unique vegetation.
