Berbérati is the third-largest city in the Central African Republic, with a population of 76,918 (2003 census). Located in the south-west of the country near the border with Cameroon, it serves as capital of the Mambéré-Kadéï Prefecture.

In the early 20th century Berbérati was part of Oubangui-Chari, one of the four territories comprising French Equatorial Africa which later became Central African Republic. In 1911 it was ceded to German Empire under the terms of the Morocco–Congo Treaty and Treaty of Fez, becoming part of the German colony of Neukamerun, until it was reconquered by the French in 1916 following the defeat of German forces in western Africa during World War I.

The zebu herd (oxen) arrive at Compagnie Miniere de l' Oubanghi headquarters in Berberati, a little weary and thin after the 260 kilometer hike. ca. 1950

The state-owned university hospital of Berbérati is an unfenced complex of several bungalows near the town center. The hospital was constructed in the 1950s and operated by French military doctors until the 1980s. The French hospital administrators were succeed by an expatriate Italian Catholic nun, although the hospital also receives Protestant support.[2]

Berbérati is served by the Berbérati Airport and is often visited by tourists on their way to the Dzanga-Sangha Special Reserve. It is also home of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Berbérati.
