The Okavango River Bridge, also known as the Mohembo Bridge, has been officially opened by Botswanan President Mokgweetsi Masisi.

The 1.2km-long bridge will ease the movement of people and goods in the Okavango area.

Constructed at a cost of about BWP1bn (€72.1m), the bridge connects villages on the eastern side of the Okavango (Mohembo East) to Mohembo West.

The bridge was previously opened for public use in June 2022 by Transport and Public Works Minister, Eric Molale.
