The Sanaga River is a river of South Province, Cameroon, Centre Province, Cameroon, and West Province, Cameroon. Its length is 890 kilometers.

The Sanaga River crosses Cameroon, forming a boundary between two tropical moist forest ecoregions. It also marks the difference between the lower-laying lands of southern Cameroon and the mountainous plateaux region to the North.

This APM image combines two signals, acquired simultaneously, making it possible to better observe the differences in elevation. Upon opening the full image, more of the ridges of the mountainous region can be observed to the North.
