    As so many rivers flowed in the kingdom, there was fertile soil in abundance. Also, the nearby grasslands made farming successful. Mbanza Kongo,the capital, was also surrounded by dense rainforests, and the ocean provided shell fish. As you can see, the Kongo kingdom had no problem with the food.
    Most of the population of the Kongo Kingdom lived in the basin of the Congo river, with a gigantic area of 1,400,000 square miles! In the basin there were forests, marshes, swamps, lakes, and other smaller rivers that branched off the main Congo River.

    Cultural:
    The Kongo's believed that there were two worlds; one of the living,"nza yayi," and of the dead,"nsi a bafwa," divided by a body of water called the Kalunga. What that actually meant was that life and death are just a cycle that everyone has to go through; imitating the path of the sun. When the sun sets the living and the dead exchange day and night. They also believed that when the sun sets it symbolizes death and when it rises it symbolizes rebirth.
