Description [ correction ]

Chirundu is a small border town situated in the hot and humid Zambezi Valley, on the banks of the Zambezi River. It’s located on the T2 highway which links up to the A1 highway in Zimbabwe and is thus one of the busiest border crossings in Zambia; it sees trucks transporting goods from the large harbour in Beira in Mozambique, as well as trucks from South Africa and Zimbabwe. Chirundu means ‘people following one another in a line’ which refers to the queues of people waiting to cross the Zambezi River!
