Description [ correction ]

Chirundu is a small but busy town in Zambia situated along the main Great North road between Lusaka and Harare, hence a border crossing town between Zimbabwe -Zambia. In Zimbabwe there is a similar village called Chirundu. The Chirundu town is also the administrative capital of the Chirundu district since 2012, hence the town became one of the busiest as constant stream of trucks can be seen moving to and from Zambia. The town is located within Mashonaland West province of Zimbabwe. Chirundu is the only town on the Zambezi where two bridges cross the river. The bridge is the crossing point of travellers to and from Zimbabwe to Zambia. The town is hot and dusty and sometimes elephants can be spotted on their way from the river to the bush.
