The name ZIZABONA was derived by taking the first two letters of the following country names: Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia. It is a 400/330kV Interconnector line envisaged to establish the required infrastructure to interconnect the countries named above. The project will enable the wheeling of power north south or vice versa via the Caprivi Link. The revised ZIZABONA project components include a direct line from Livingstone to Zambezi together with a radial connection from Victoria Falls to Pandamatenga (see figure 1).
