N'Délé or Ndele is a market town and sub prefecture in the north eastern Central African Republic, lying east of the Bamingui-Bangoran National Park. Ndélé is the capital of Bamingui-Bangoran, one of the 14 prefectures of the Central African Republic. N'Délé had a population of 10,850 as of the 2003 census; and a calculated 2013 population of 13,704.

The tata, or fortified wall, creates a citadel-like palace on a hill overlooking N'Délé. It was constructed at the behest of Sultan Mohammed al-Sanussi in the late 19th Century. N'Délé, the tata, and the Kaga-Kpoungouvou Caves were collectively added to the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List on April 11, 2006 in the Cultural category.[1] There is an airport in the city. When the fighting resumed in December 2012 between the FACA loyalists and the rebel coalition of Séléka, the city fell to rebel forces.
