The Kazungula public ferry or pontoon service (a flotation device able to float itself as well as a heavy load) is driven by a side mounted diesel engine, transports a few vehicles at a time across the river.  The border crossing is the only place in the world where four countries come close uniting at a quadripoint.

A quadripoint is a point on the Earth that touches the border of four distinct territories. Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia are believed to be a quadripoint however, the countries of Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana actually only meet.

The ferry at Kazangula provides transportation to people and on average, 70 trucks cross with the ferry per day. About 100 trucks on both sides of the ferry crossing take up to two weeks before they are able to cross the Zambezi River.  The Kazungula Ferry is one of the largest ferries in south-central Africa, having a capacity of 70 tons and runs between Kazungula, Zambia and Kasane, Botswana.

In 2003 the Kazangula ferry capsized and was the site of a disaster where 18 people drowned.

In 2003 the Kazangula ferry capsized and was the site of a disaster where 18 people drowned. In order to alleviate the poor transportation issues, Kazungula Bridge project was planned in 2007 as much needed infrastructure transportation plan on the Zambezi River and to the surrounding African countries of Botswana and Zambia.  

The Kazungula Bridge is a multi-national project on the North-South corridor on the Zambezi River. The bridge construction is expected to take four years at a cost of US $259 million.  

Beginning in 2014, the project is being funded by loans from the African Development Bank, the Japan International Cooperation Agency as well as contributions from both the Governments of Zambia and Botswana according to the African Development Bank Group.

Africa is surrounded by water but is not an island, here are a few African Island facts.

Madagascar is the 4th large island in the world and is located in the Indian Ocean supporting a unique biology, about 90% of its plants and animals are found nowhere else on earth.

Composed of 155 islands, Seychelles is Africa's smallest country. By far the largest island is Mahe, home to about 90% of the population and the site of its capital city of Victoria.

Cabo Verde has a strategic location 310 miles or 500 km from the west coast of Africa near major north-south sea routes; important communications station; important sea and air refueling site.

Africa is surrounded by water but by definition Africa is not an island because Africa is a continent. Continents can not be considered islands because of their size and also by historic definition since many people who study geography define islands and continents as two different things.

Being African in America I have grown up learning about different ethnic cultures. My father and mother are historians of African culture and history and their influence expanded my activities to several best-selling cookbooks, magazine columns, self-branded products, and a popular African culture and food blog.
