Bandama River

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandama_River

The Bandama River is the longest river in Côte d'Ivoire with a length of some 800 kilometers. The south-flowing river is fed by the Marahoué, Solomougou, Kan and Nzi rivers and empties into the Tagba Lagoon and the Gulf of Guinea.

The Bandama flows through Lake Kossou, a large artificial lake created in 1973 by the construction of the Kossou Dam at Kossou.

Yamoussoukro, the capital of Côte d'Ivoire, is located adjacent from the Bandama River.
