In the Western Province of Zambia there is a traditional ceremony called Kuomboka “to get out of water”. At the end of the rainy season, when the upper Zambezi River floods the plains of the Western Province, the ceremony celebrates the migration of the Lozi people on large wooden boats from these Western floodplains to higher ground. These floods are an important part of the landscape by providing irrigation for the grasslands on which huge herds of cattle and wildebeest depend.
