The country shares borders with Nigeria, Chad, Central African Republic, Gabon and the People's Republic of Congo. The environment ranges from tropical and montane rainforest, through increasingly dry savanna to the Sahel zone south of Lake Chad. The hydrographic network is dense. The rainfall varies from the very low areas of the far north to the perpetually rainy areas of the south and coast.
