Bangui lies on the Northern bank of the Oubangui river, the largest tributary of the mighty Congo river, and on of Africa's longest rivers in its own right.
At this stage we had exhausted the entertainment options of Bangui's principal commercial strip and so we decided to stroll around the edges of town to see if the natural beauty was a substitute for the thinness of the urban attractions.
We had scarcely the courage to face another 11 days waiting in Bangui and even then there was no guarantee that we'd be granted the visas especially since the Khartoum government had just started a bombing campaign against UN bases in the South of the country and Western tourists might not be especially welcome.

BANGUI, 14 Jan 2003 (IRIN) - The Central African Republic (CAR) deputy defence minister, Gen Xavier Sylvestre Yangongo, denied on Tuesday reports that rebels had taken the city of Bouar, 454 km northwest of the capital, Bangui.
He was responding to reports in a local daily newspaper, Le Confident, which claimed that rebels led by Gen Francois Bozize, the former CAR army chief of staff currently in exile in France, had taken Bouar.
Situated on the main road linking Bangui to the Cameroonian seaport of Douala, through which most CAR imports and exports are channelled, Bouar is a strategic city in that it has airstrip and a former French military base that has been transformed into a CAR army training camp.

BANGUI, 22 February (IRIN) - An International Monetary Fund (IMF) mission left the Central African Republic (CAR) on Sunday disappointed with the transitional government's efforts to reform its management of resources and fight corruption, diplomats said.

The IMF is not in a mood to help fund the financial gap, diplomats in Bangui told IRIN on Saturday after meeting with the IMF's head of mission.

CEMI was established in June 2002 to ensure the proper holding of the municipal elections originally scheduled for the end of that year and postponed until 2003 by the Government.
That work was nearing completion when the crisis broke out in Bangui: on 25 October 2002 the towns of Kabo, Batangafo, Bogangolo and Damara and, later, the capital, Bangui, were attacked by Bozizé’s forces with support from nationals of other countries.
While it is hardly conceivable that forces of the regular Chadian army should have participated in the attack on Bangui, the Government in N’Djaména could not have been unaware of the preparations being made on its borders for a military offensive against towns in the Central African Republic.
