This APM image shows the Rufiji River flowing across Tanzania. The river is formed by the convergence of the Kilombero and Luwegu rivers. Its principal tributary is the Great Ruaha River. Here, two reservoirs can be observed near the river.

The Rufiji is approximately 600 km (375 mi) long, all of which is located in Tanzania. Its source is in southwestern Tanzania and its mouth on the Indian Ocean at a point between Mafia Island called Mafia Channel.
