Africa's "Four Corners" - April 16th, 2010

The bright green area near the center of this image is a marshy zone situated at the far end of the Caprivi Strip, at Africa’s “Four Corners”. This area is so named because it is found at the meeting of the borders of Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia.

The marshlands are created by the Cuando River (alternatively spelled Kwando), where it flows as a marshy channel across the neck of the Caprivi Strip of Namibia and then forms the border between Namibia and Botswana as it continues southeast.
