Running for an astounding 2,600 miles through a massive delta, The Niger River is the principal river of West Africa.
The river source is in the Guinea Highlands in southeastern Guinea and the river discharges into the Gulf of Guinea on the Atlantic Ocean.
The Niger is the third longest river in Africa. Only the Nile and the Congo rivers are longer.
