The Mbamigi Archipelago (Zaigali Mbamigi IPA: /zai.' ba.', also known as the Mbamigi Islands are an archipelago which make up all of the territory of the Republic of the Mbamigi Islands. The archipelago is situated in the Sira Gulf, off the southeastern coast of Nagu and north of Boroso and the Island of Dhwer.

The archipelago is made up of 37 islands as well as numerous islets, reefs, and atolls. These include 12 major islands and 25 minor islands. The islands are arranged into five provinces as part of the Republic of the Mbamigi Islands.

Formerly known as the Pamek Archipelago while under Dhweran control, after independence they were formally renamed the Mbamigi Archipelago in 1922, after the largest island in the chain.

The Mbamigi islands are continental islands and are geologically part of the continent of Nagu. Evidence shows that until approximately 120,000 years ago, at the end of the last ice age, the Mbamigi Islands were part of the main continent, which formed a land-bridge between southeastern Nagu and northern Boroso.

Despite the geologic connection to Nagu, the islands are, due to historic and political ties (especially to the United Kingdom of Dhwer and Penkrot), considered part of Boroso.
