Most of Cote d'Ivoire (north to south) is a forested plateau, one that gradually slopes down to the Atlantic Ocean coastal areas.
Exceptions are the edges of the Guinea Highlands (4000 - 5000 ft. peaks) on its western border with Guinea, in the far northwest and the elevated savanna and forest of the northeast.
Extending across the middle of the country is the Guinean forest-savanna mosaic, a transition zone between the coastal forests and interior savannas
The highest point of the Cote d'Ivoire is Monts Nimba at 5,748 ft (1,752 m), and the lowest point is the Gulf of Guinea (0 m).
Major rivers, including the Bandama, Komoe and Sassandra, drain the plateau. Large lakes include Loc de Ebire and Loc de Kossou.
