The 4th longest river of Africa, the Zambezi originates from Zambia and flows through 4 other countries before emptying into the Indian Ocean. The river changes in several places along its course from placid flow in sandy plains to annual flood plains as well as tumbling rivers of falls and rapids. The Zambezi River is widely used by wildlife and humans alike. Apart from being a source of water for both, it is also an important source for transportation, irrigation, tourism and hydropower.
