Zambezi River Basin navigation system

Navigation on the Zambezi River is both international and local. The main international transport routes are the Kazungula and Luangwa-Kanyemba, while major national routes are in the upper Zambezi River and on Lake Malawi/Niassa/Nyasa. There are also small crossings that provide access to major markets (Denconsult 1998). There are major crossings on the Kabompo River, Kafue River and Chobe River in Namibia and Botswana, and on the Shire River in Mozambique and Malawi. Tanzania, Malawi and Mozambique, which share Lake Malawi/Niassa/Nyasa, all use the lake for navigation (Denconsult 1998). The section of the Zambezi running 570 kilometres from Mphanda Nkuwa, Mozambique to the Indian Ocean is the longest navigable portion of the river.
