Basin Overview:

The Limpopo River basin encapsulates a diverse landscape and four riparian countries. The Limpopo River travels from the confluence of the Marcio and Crocodile Rivers in South Africa to the Indian Ocean at Xai Xai, in Mozambique. Along its route, the river forms the border between Botswana and South Africa, then the border between Zimbabwe and South Africa, before passing into Mozambique at Pafuri. (LIMCOM)
