Okavango, Cuando and Zambezi Rivers in Angola and Zambia

Angola and Zambia - March 31st, 2011

Several rivers can be seen flowing southeastward across Angola (left) and Zambia (right). The man ones are the Okavango (left), the Cuando (center) and the Zambezi River (right).

The thicker green area at the center right is the floodplain of the Zambezi River. Today it is about half as broad as it was before the construction of the Kariba and Cahora Bassa dams, which control the seasonal variations in the flow rate of the river.
