Remarkable aerial photo of the Limpopo river taken in Mozambique during the 2000 floods by Angr. (Wikipedia). S/He notes:

Looking down as the Limpopo River winds its way through Southern Mozambique, where it recently crested its banks and sent floodwaters rushing through towns and farmland, forcing people from their homes and wreaking havoc with the countries infrastructure.

The Limpopo is the second largest river in Africa that drains to the Indian Ocean, after the Zambezi River. It rises in South Africa and then threads its way through Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique, before emptying near Xai-xai in Mozambique.
