OgowayOgoway, or Ogowe, The, a river which rises in a sandy plateau, N. of the basin of the Congo, and about 300 miles from the W. coast of Africa, and not far from the Equator. On approaching the coast, it receives several large affluents, and opens out into a broad stream of 8,000 feet, being connected with the lakes Ajingo and Jonanga. It is then split by a delta, some 80 miles long, into several branches, of which the most northerly, the Nazareth, enters the ocean a little above Cape Lopez, whilst the southern streams are lost in the Cama Lagoon and the Rio Fernao Vas.
