The largest natural permanent surface waters in Namibia occur in the wetlands of East Caprivi and are fed by two of Namibia's five perennial rivers. The wetlands are divided into five geographically distinct zones with a total surface area of abut 5 000km. Two of the areas (Lake Liambezi and the eastern floodplain) are only intermittently inundated when the Zambezi River is in flood, while the Kwando River, the Linyanti Swamp and the Chobe Marsh are permanent. In wet years, the five systems form acontinuous water body.
