Mutambara is a fictional province in the Zambezi region which borders Botswana, Angola, Zambia, Namibia and Zimbabwe. The province consists of small towns, villages and slums with one main river which runs from the northern border to the southern. The river is dried up for the majority of the year which drives up famine, the agriculture is non existent other than what can be harvested from the palms and areas around the dried riverbed.

The region has suffered from a decade long conflict between various political factions with racial segregation causing tension between villages and slums. The main government faction, backed by South African, Rhodesian and Western mercenaries, still holds power after a second successful election and continues to push for international recognition. Communist backed factions claim the elections are rigged and continue to carry out attacks on government military targets across the province.

The UN have criticised the leadership of both main factions for not coming to a fair agreement in the short lived peace talks and stress the importance of preventing civilian casualties.


- 5x5km
- Mountain areas, plains and palms along a riverbed.
- Two main government patrol bases
- 4 main large towns + multiple small villages and slums
- Real world heightmap and satellite imagery

The terrain and concept is based around the Rhodesian Bush Wars and Angolan Civil War era. Uniforms and assets in the screenshots are from Spearpoint Alpha mod. Highly recommend.

You can find a module for removing the garbage clutter from the map in Environment > [Mutambara] Hide Garbage Clutter.

Its a wonderful map, hosted a few Ops in the Rhodesia setting. Only thing i say is kind of bad is that most of the houses are not able to be halfway destroyed or damaged only completly or not (so in my Op maybe fix that ) but all in all wonderful map, the names for the towns are again wonderful.(maybe could have named the Patrol Outposts aswell ). All people that played said its one of the best maps they ever played on.

@swurvin ah, alright, i got confused because from above it looks blue so i thought it was some weird choice you made when making the map, a less dry version thats more jungly would be very nice though, and the map is quite small

@IBrEOv "The river is dried up for the majority of the year which drives up famine, the agriculture is non existent other than what can be harvested from the palms and areas around the dried riverbed."

I wanted the terrain to be super dry.

if you want to make Mutambara even gnarlier, load this mod up alongside it and go check out Mutambara! load it once before the mod, and then load after so you can tell the difference.
Flippin gnarly!
