The Republic of Zambia is a landlocked country in Southern Africa neighboring the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north, Tanzania to the north-east, Malawi to the east, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia to the south, and Angola to the west.
Zambia consists mostly of very high plateaus along with mountains which are dissected by river valleys. It covers an area of about 752,600 km2 and lies between the latitudes of 8° and 18°S, as well as the longitudes of 22° and 34°E.
There are two main river basins:
The Zambezi in the central, western as well as southern parts, covering about three-fourth of the nation; and
The Congo basin in the northern region, covering about one-fourth of the nation.
There are a number of major rivers flowing in the Zambezi basin. These include the Kabompo, the Lungwebungu, the Kafue, the Luangwa as well as the Zambezi itself.The north of Zambia is very flat with broad plains. In the west the most notable being the Barotse Floodplain on the Zambezi, which floods from December to June, lagging behind the annual rainy season (typically November to April). Lake Tanganyika is another major hydrographic feature which belongs to the Congo basin.
