The Cunene River with a total length of approximately 890 km, rises in the vicinity of Nova Lisboa in Angola. From the Ruacana Falls the Cunene River flows westwards for 340 km before it enters the Atlantic Ocean and forms the international boundary between Namibia and Angola. Floodplain wetlands occur between Matunto and Calueque in Angola.
