This charming town is located on the banks of the Zambezi River, one of the most fascinating rivers in Africa. The Zambezi traverses a wide variety of landscapes along its lengthy journey and is a true gem of the African continent. As the fourth largest river in Africa, its total catchment covers about 1 390 000km² and is approximately 2700km long. On its way to the Indian Ocean, the Zambezi flows through six countries in total: Zambia, Angola, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique. It spends the most amount of time in Zambia, and the least in Botswana. The river forms the border of Zambia and Namibia, Zambia and Botswana, and Zambia and Zimbabwe.
