Covering 3,000 square kilometers, the Zambezi Delta in Mozambique is one of the most diverse and productive river delta systems in the world. This unique wetland, which is protected under the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands, features a broad alluvial plain with vast mosaics of grassland, woods, deep swamps and extensive mangroves.

Recognized as a global biodiversity conservation hotspot, this remarkable delta is home to myriad wildlife, ranging from big mammals such as buffalos, lions and elephants to water birds such as fish eagles and flamingos to marine species such as dolphins and freshwater fish. This extraordinary delta also provides a source of food for Mozambique and protects the coast from flooding.
