It's a new bridge across the Zambezi River connecting Botswana and Zambia, which just-misses crossing into either Namibia or Zimbabwe at the countries' near-quadripoint.

Sexy bridge.  Glad it's finally open.  We would have just missed its opening had we not had to cancel our trip down there this summer.

The bridge actually opened a while ago already, in May 2021.



It's an extradosed bridge:
