The Republic of the Congo is often confused with the Democratic Republic of the Congo, whereby it represents an independent state. The Republic of the Congo is also shaped by the Congo Basin in the area of ​​the landscape zones. Due to the decisive tropical climate, the Republic of the Congo has wet savannahs and tropical rainforests. Nevertheless, tree savannahs can also be found. Furthermore, the Congo River and its tributary Ubangi are the largest bodies of water with a total length of more than 4000 kilometers. The highest mountain range, on the other hand, is the Ruwenzori with more than 5000 meters.

To the west of Gabon and Equatorial Guinea is the island state of Sao Tome and Principe. Besides the Seychelles, however, this state is the smallest country in Africa. While mainly mountainous highlands can be found on the island of Sao Tome, Principe has mostly flat regions. The highest point of the island state is 2024 meters on the island of Sao Tome. However, there are no significant rivers on the island state of Sao Tome and Principe.

The state of Chad is also located in Central Africa, which borders Libya in the north and Sudan in the east. Most of Lake Chad and the Chad Basin are located in this state, whereby the landscape of the desert, in this case the Sahara, characterizes the country and the climatic conditions. The largest elevation in Chad has the Tibesti mountain range with more than 3415 meters. Further mountains are the highlands of Ennedi in the east, with the highest mountain peak of 1450 meters. Furthermore, in Chad, flood savannahs can also be seen along numerous rivers, while in the country there are gallery forests in addition to dry and thorny savannahs.

Like the name of the Central African Republic, this state is also located in Central Africa. In the north it borders on the African states of Sudan and Chad, in the west, on the other hand, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Republic of the Congo and Cameroon. Furthermore, the Central African Republic is located on the plateau of the so-called north equatorial threshold, so that the state has elevations of up to 1420 meters. In addition, the state is located on the northern edge of the Congo Basin, whereby the landscape of the wet and tree savannah can primarily be found. Furthermore, two different river systems flow through the country. Both the Shari in the north of the Central African Republic and the Ubangi River form the largest and longest bodies of water.
