Bambari is a town in the Central African Republic, lying on the Ouaka River. It has a population of 41,356 (2003 census) and is the capital of Ouaka prefecture. Bambari is an important market town and is home to Bambari Airport, and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bambari.

Mining

Large deposits of iron ore have been discovered in the vicinity of Bambari, though the considerable distance to the sea — 1500km — probably makes exploitatation of these reserves doubtful in the near future. A heavy duty railway and a deepwater port in a neighbouring country would be required.

The mining resource also includes iron deposits at Bakala.
