The Kadéï River is a tributary of the Sangha River that flows through Cameroon and the Central African Republic. Its total drainage basin is 24,000 km2. The river rises from the eastern Adamawa Plateau, southeast of Garoua-Boulaï (5°53′50″N 14°33′30″E / 5.89722°N 14.55833°E / 5.89722; 14.55833 (Kadéï River headwaters)) in Cameroon's East Province. The Kadéï is swelled by two tributaries, the Doumé at Mindourou (4°7′45″N 14°34′22″E / 4.12917°N 14.57278°E / 4.12917; 14.57278 (Doumé Rvier mouth)) and the Boumbé (4°6′45″N 15°7′10″E / 4.11250°N 15.11944°E / 4.11250; 15.11944 (Boumbé River mouth)), before flowing east into the Central African Republic. At Nola (3°31′10″N 16°2′35″E / 3.51944°N 16.04306°E / 3.51944; 16.04306 (Kadéï River mouth)Coordinates: 3°31′10″N 16°2′35″E / 3.51944°N 16.04306°E / 3.51944; 16.04306 (Kadéï River mouth)), the Kadéï meets the Mambéré and becomes the Sangha.
