Senanga is a town in the Western Province of Zambia, on the eastern bank of the Zambezi River, at the southern end of its Barotse Floodplain. It lies on the main road running parallel to the river from Livingstone and Sesheke to Mongu, which crosses the river by a pontoon ferry about 15 km (9 mi) south of Senanga. There is a bridge now across the Zambezi near the Junction to Sioma, that is if one is traveling from Sesheke and Katima Mulilo.This bridge was recently constructed. The section of the road to Mongu is in perfect condition as it was recently tarred. The section to Sesheke is also in perfect condition as it was also recently tarred.In addition to the river and floodplain with its wildlife and fishing opportunities, Senanga is about 120 km (75 mi) from Sioma Ngwezi National Park and about 80 km (50 mi) from Ngonye Falls.
