The vast Limpopo River rises in South Africa and flows eastward as it makes its way toward the Indian Ocean. Its course marks South Africa's border with Botswana and Zimbabwe before it turns south, flowing into the Indian Ocean in Mozambique. An impressive 18 million people live alongside the river, depending on it for farming, fishing, tourism and other means of income. The Limpopo's vast watershed includes Johannesburg (southern Africa's largest city), Kruger Park (one of the region's largest tourist attractions), two national capitals, and important industrial and agricultural sites.
