On the Cubango River

Heading east from Ongula, on a surprisingly good road, we stopped for the night at a lodge on the river that forms part of the Namibian/Angolan border. The Rio Cubango rises in Angola's highlands and heads south-east to form that border for a while, before being joined by the Cuito, another Angolan river, and later... Continue Reading →
