#33 - Mokele-Mbembe, The Last Dinosaur

Deep within the swampy jungles of Central Africa lurks a legend: Mokele-mbembe. This name, translating roughly to "one who stops the flow of rivers" in the Lingala language, refers to a creature said to inhabit the Congo Basin. Described as a monstrous, long-necked sauropod, Mokele-mbembe has captured the imaginations of cryptozoologists and locals alike for centuries, sparking debate over whether it's a relic from the dinosaur era or a product of folklore.


Join Ivan and Nate as they pack their heaviest weaponry and head out on a journey down the Congo River, not in search of Kurtz, but rather, what some believe to be the last remaining dinosaur on Earth: Mokele-Mbembe.
