Located on the Mbali River, at about 100km northwest of the national capital, Bangui, the town of Boali is noted for its waterfalls and for the nearby hydroelectric works. The Falls of Boali are 250m wide and 50m high, and are a popular tourist destination. The hydroelectric works are located below the falls, supply power to the capital and 13 other towns. It spurred several other industrial developments in the town, including the country's first textile mill, which began operating in 1954.
