The Zambezi River accounts for the hydropower capacity in Southern Africa

The two main sources of hydroelectric power on the river can be found at the Kariba Dam, providing power to Zambia and Zimbabwe, and the Cahora Bassa Dam, powering Mozambique and South Africa. There is also a smaller power station at Victoria Falls, which generates some additional power to Zambia and Zimbabwe.
