The Zambezi River is arguably the biggest river in southern Africa, the second longest river in sub-Saharan Africa and also the biggest flowing into the Indian Ocean in the world. The Zambezi basin is approximately one third of the area of Africa, slightly smaller than the Nile. The Zambezi is located in a country that is known to have long been rich in water, including gold, silver and diamonds.
The Zambezi River is situated at the confluence of the Western and Eastern Tanzania Rivers. Its delta extends for approximately 500km along the Zambezi and is filled with a multitude of rivers and lakes. Its water is very salty as it flows from the Zambezi and enters Lake Albert in Zambia. This lake is the largest freshwater body in Zambia and is also home to the largest number of birds and amphibians.
The basin of the Zambezi River is divided into two zones namely the Walden Africa and the Eastern zone of Lake Albert. The Eastern Zone of Lake Albert is an area with abundant hydropower resources. However, the Zambezi River itself has few tributaries. These tributaries serve to augment the Zambezi with fresh water from its basin. Therefore, it is the Zambian endowments of these rivers that are the main sources of freshwater for Zambia.
Zambia's hydropower resources can be divided into four categories namely; power generating, hydroelectricity, irrigation and desalination. The Zambezi River is located between the Western Tanzania provinces of Lamudi and Zanzibar. It runs through the Western Province of Zambia, through Zambia's provinces of Malawi and Zimbabwe. The Western Zambezi River carries Zambia's only major tributary, the Ndereba River. It is fed by several smaller tributaries and lakes.
The Western Province of Zambia is known for its numerous lakes and waterfalls. It is the home of Lake Bogoria and Lake Magadi, two of Zambia's largest lakes. In the past, Lake Magadi was used for transporting salt from Tanzania to Zambia and vice versa.
Zambia's hydroelectric dams are some of the largest and are located on the Zambezi River. Some of these dams are; Bwiti Dam (Lukumba Dam), Khutse Dam (Mugumba Dam) and Damani Dam (Maniema Dam). These dams are responsible for providing Zambia with a steady source of clean and electricity generating electricity. The dams also create a lot of tourist appeal in Zambia and are well known worldwide as the largest hydropower facilities in Zambia.

There are several water parks around the country that provide tourists with a great opportunity to enjoy wildlife and the wildlife in this beautiful country. The Zambezi River can be accessed through a number of different methods, most notably the Zambia Road of National Parks.

A number of water parks are located near the Zambezi, which is where most of the water sport activities occur. Some of the popular water parks include; Lake Bogoria in Zambia, Lake Kariba in Zambia, and Lake Victoria in Zambia, Lake Monywa in Zambia, and Lake Nakuru in Zambia. Most of these water parks provide the tourists with a number of water sports activities including kayaking, canoeing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, scuba diving and swimming.
Zambia has a large number of game reserves as well. The parks are home to a variety of animals and birds, which include large numbers of giraffes, buffalo, antelopes, hippos, elephants, cheetahs, zebras and rhinos. The parks are also home to a number of species of birds, which include woodpeckers, parakeets, cardinals, flamingos and parrot birds. Many of the animals, including cheetahs and zebras, are protected by law and are protected by local communities so there are no tourists allowed to hunt or kill them.
Although the country of Zambia has many national parks and protected areas, it is also one of the countries in Africa that has a high risk of malaria and dengue virus transmission. Due to this, some people choose to stay away from the country and have their safari holidays elsewhere. The most popular travel destinations include South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe.
