Rivers of Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe is famous for the Zambezi River, which forms the border with Zambia in the north and northwest. The Zambezi drains one percent of the world’s land surface, and most of this one percent happens to be in a high rainfall area. The eastern part of Zimbabwe is mountainous and has a good rainfall pattern, but the rivers there, which are guaranteed to be interesting creeks, are largely unexplored. The exception is the Pungwe River, which is rafted and kayaked regularly.
