Mamfe (also spelled Mamfé) is a city and capital of the Manyu A Division of the Southwest Province in Cameroon. It is located 60 km from the border of Nigeria, on the Manyu River. It has a population of 20,300 (2001 estimate). It is known as a centre for traditional religion and traditional medicine. It used to be known for its bad infrastructure, especially the roads, which however were recently tarred and presently are in a good condition, within the city limits.
The Manyu River rises near Wabane in the Upper Banyang Subdivision of the Manyu Department of the Southwest Region, Cameroon. The river runs past the southern border of the Mone River Forest Reserve. 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.
These are some bigger and more relevant cities in the wider vivinity of Mamfe.
