Nyami Nyami: The River God


image

We are still on our holidays in the sunshine,  and last week we visited Lake Kariba,  which is fed by the Zambezi River, which flows between Zambia and Zimbabwe.   Lake Karibahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Kariba is the world’s largest artificial lake and reservoir by volume, with an area of 5400 Sq.km.

According to legend, Nyami nyami is the ruler of water, has the body of a snake and a head like a fish, and he protects the Tonga tribes of the Zambezi valley. Today he sits on a ledge overlooking the Kariba dam wall
