Africa rainforest map

return to gallery

Africa has the world's second largest area of undisturbed tropical rainforest. Most of this is within the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire), in the Congo River watershed. Other equatorial regions have little rainforest remaining. Small areas of rainforest are scattered along the Atlantic coast of West Africa. The most significant include pockets along the coast in countries comprising the Bight of Benin, including Nigeria, Ghana and Ivory Coast. (Countries without significant areas are not labelled.)
