The delegation of approximately 10-15 people will board the boat in Mbandaka and then cruise down river stopping at approximately two ports of call along the way. The two ports of call are still yet to be determined. The expectation is that the boat cruise starting from Mbandaka and ending in Kinshasa will take approximately two days. The intent of this request for quotation is that you provide the capability and general information about the watercraft and services you can provide. At a minimum the boat must have a restroom (toilet), passenger capacity for up to 15 people, a qualified boat captain with experience to navigate the boat/ship safely on the Congo river from Mbandaka to Kinshasa. Please include responses to the following questions in your quotation: 1. What is the passenger capacity for your boat? 2.
