Where do four states or four countries meet?

I recently read about a location in the United States called Four Corners Monument. This is the only place in the United States where four states intersect at one point: Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado. It’s very remote and I’m not planning to visit it.

There’s another spot on the globe where the boundaries of four countries meet and I have been there. It’s  in the middle of water and unmarked. It is actually at the confluence of the Zambezi River and the Chobe River and, at a point in the middle of the river, the borders of Zambia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Namibia all meet.

I used this latter location as the starting point for one of my 27 short stories called “An African Adventure”.
