Nigeria Geography

The landscape of Nigeria varies with mangrove forests and swamps bordering the southern coast, and hardwood forests further inland.
The Niger and Benue River valleys make up Nigeria's most expansive region, merging into each other to form a distinctive 'Y' shape.
The Mambilla Plateau, the highest in the country, forms the area southeast of the Benue, and is punctuated by hills and mountains, extending into the border with Landforms of Africa
