    The Zambezi has been harnessed at various points along the way including the massive Kariba Dam between Zambia and Zimbabwe and Cabora Bassa Dam in Mozambique. Plans for another dam at the Batoka gorge have fortunately been shelved because it is nearer the falls and fear that it will flood upstream flooding the falls. That is or was the last attempt to divert the river but currently the project has been suspended .

    I am curious to know how you think the Zambesi can successfully be diverted?

    Have you seen that river in flood?
