The Congo River flows through the city. Its Cathédrale Saint-Hermès is the cathedral episcopal see of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Lisala. It is the birthplace of president Mobutu Sese Seko, who ruled Congo (which he renamed Zaire) from 1965 to 1997.
The area is crossed by the N6 road, of the Route Nationale and is bordered to the north by the Mangala river and to the south by the Congo River.
