The Pool Malebo (formerly Stanley Pool, also seen as Malebo Pool), is a lake-like widening in the lower reaches of the Congo River. It is about 35 km (22 mi) long and 23 km (14 mi) wide, and has an island (Bamu Island) at its western end. The capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kinshasa, and the capital of the Republic of the Congo, Brazzaville, are located on opposite shores of Pool Malebo.

The Pool is the beginning of the navigable part of the Congo river; just below it the river descends hundreds of meters in a series of rapids known as the Livingstone Falls.
