Niger River Running Through Kainji Lake, Nigeria10.3N 4.5E
The Niger River runs in a crescent through Mali, Niger, on the border with Benin and then through Nigeria. Here, it can be seen flowing across southwestern Niger, along the Benin border and through part of Nigeria.
In western Nigeria, it flows through Kainji Lake, visible by the lower right corner. The reservoir, gold and green from sediments and algae, was formed by the Kainji Dam.
