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. The section of the road to Mongu is in perfect condition as it was recently tarred and the section to Sesheke is a gravel road, often in poor condition in the rainy season.
