Limpopo River
The Limpopo River rises in South Africa,[1] and flows generally eastwards through Mozambique to the Indian Ocean. The term Limpopo is derived from Rivombo (Livombo/Lebombo), a group of Tsonga settlers led by Hosi Rivombo who settled in the mountainous vicinity and named the area after their leader. The river is approximately 1,750 kilometres (1,087 mi) long, with a drainage basin 415,000 square kilometres (160,200 sq mi) in size. The mean discharge measured over a year is 170 m3/s (6,200 cu ft/s) at its mouth.[2] The Limpopo is the second largest river in Africa that drains to the Indian Ocean, after the Zambezi River.[citation needed] The first European to sight the river was Vasco da Gama, who anchored off its mouth in 1498 and named it Espirito Santo River
