Zambezi River

Zambezi RiverThe Zambezi <<zam BEE zee>> River is the fourth longest river in Africa. Solely the Nile, Congo, and Niger rivers are longer. The Zambezi rises in Zambia, close to the border between Angola and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The river follows a winding 1,seven hundred-mile (2,736-kilometer) course, separating Zambia from Zimbabwe and crossing Mozambique to empty into the Mozambique Channel. The higher course of the river is fed by heavy rains that fall from October to March. The Zambezi plunges over the mighty Victoria Falls in southern Africa. The primary European to discover the Zambezi River was David Livingstone. He explored the river within the 1850’s and 1860’s.
