A group of seven scientists started, this Wednesday (March 29), an expedition on the Cuando River, in the municipality of Rivungo, in Cuando Cubango, in an initiative that is part of the cooperation agreements between National Geographic and the ministries of the Environment and Culture and Tourism.


Thus, for 10 days, the group will travel 600 kilometers by boat, on a route starting in Shangombo (Zambia) and going to Bico de Angola (Rivungo), according to a statement from the municipal administration of Rivungo, which the VerAngola had access.

"The expedition, which will last 10 days and cover a 600 kilometer journey by boat, started on the Zambian side (Shangombo) on the banks of the Cuando and goes to Bico de Angola (Municipality of Rivungo)", says the note.

The group is composed of scientists of different nationalities. "The scientists Joseph Swenson Cutler (American nationality), Michael William Watson (British nationality), Gregory John Thompson (British), Robert William Taylor (South African), Megan Gluebckert Six (American nationality), Frank Jan Willems (Dutch nationality) and Salomon Maritz Booysen (German)", says the municipal administration.
