The Kaduna River is a tributary of the Niger River which flows for 550 kilometres (340 mi) through Nigeria. It got its name from the crocodiles that lived in the river and surrounding area. Kaduna in the native dialect, Hausa, was the word for "crocodiles".[1]

It starts in Plateau State, flows through its namesake Kaduna State and through its capital Kaduna, and meets the Niger River in Niger State.
