The last rapids are just to the east of town, which is where the Wagenia fishermen set up their innovative fishing traps.

Lualaba river becomes the Congo river at the bottom of the rapids, and the seven cataracts have a total drop of 61m. The two major cataracts are the first below Ubundu, forming a narrow and crooked stream that is hardly accessible, and the last that can easily be seen and also be visited from Kisangani.The last rapids are just to the east of town, which is where the Wagenia fishermen set up their innovative fishing traps.
