Democratic Republic of the Congo–Zambia

The international boundary between the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Zambia extends for 2,388 kilometers from the tripoint with Tanzania in the northeast to the tripoint with Angola in the southwest. It was vaguely delimited by Belgian and British colonial powers in 1894 and received one of the most thorough African colonial demarcations from 1927 to 1933. It follows a variety of straight line features, rivers, and watersheds. The portion of the boundary between Lake Tanganyika and Lake Mweru was not fully defined until 1989 and has never been demarcated.
