The Zambezi River forms the boundaries of the Zumbo District in the south. The water from the Zambezi is the life giving vein that runs through the area. The villagers are dependant on the waters, as they take fish with their nets and plant crops in the moist waters on the banks of the river. The river is also an important habitat for the renewable resource of wildlife, that inhabit the waters and drink at the river's edge.
The biggest problem occurs when humans come in contact with the hippo and croccodile and this contact inevitably results in the loss of human life.
