Below Mamfe, it is joined by rivers draining the Takamanda Forest Reserve and the Cross River National Park in neighboring Nigeria. These protected areas are important habitats for the critically endangered Cross River Gorilla. Around the Nigerian border the river takes the name of the Cross River.
