Ngando is a Bantu macrolanguage of the Central African Republic, and according to Glottolog includes the Kota/Dikota language [of Central African Republic, not to be confused with the Kota language of Gabon (iKota), or the Kota language of India (Kō mānt)], and the Dikuta language.

Maho (2009) lists Ngando proper and Kota as separate languages.
