The Kafue river is a major tributary of the Zambezi river, sustaining one of the world’s great wildlife environments. It is the most central and longest river within grasslands, including swamps and plains, support large herds of herbivores and predators. During the dry season, animals keep close to swamps and marshy creeks for water.
The Kafue river originates in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and estimated at 960km in length, before flowing out into the Zambezi river which flows into the Indian Ocean, via Mozambique. Flowing through the copperbelt, water is taken from the river irrigating farms and market gardens.
Further south on the Zambia and Mozambique border the river is home to various overnight- and day time canoeing excursions.
