Exploring Africa's Rivers by Steamship

Talk to me about different kinds of steamships, which might have been used to travel around African rivers around the 1860's.

I'm not interested in sailing ships or row-boats, but rather larger passenger or cargo ships powered by some sort of engine.
Also only interested in boats that are designed to be used primarily on the rivers. They don't necessarily need to be ocean-craft.
Any information regarding the structure and design of these boats would be much appreciated! Thank you in advance.
