This West African map prominently features the Niger River, the third-largest river in the continent.
Britannica lists the river’s length as 2,600 miles (4,200 kilometers).
The river passes through five African countries. It starts off in the southern part of Guinea, then through to Mali, Niger, Benin, and Nigeria, as it drains down to the Atlantic Ocean.
