The Pendé River is a river in central Africa. It arises in Ouham-Pendé in the Central African Republic and flows north, forming a short part of the international boundary between the Central African Republic and Chad. It eventually merges with the Logone River near Kim.

Historically it gave its name to the French administrative district Pendé, which was ceded to Germany as part of Neukamerun at the treaty of Fez 1912.
