The Baloué River (French: Fleuve Baloué, from Manding for "Red River") is a river in Mali in West Africa. It flows from a source west of Bamako to the Bakoy near Toukoto and forms part of the Senegal watershed.[1][2]

In Manding languages, Baloué signifies 'red river', Bakoye 'white river' and Bafing 'black river'.[1][2]
