Bethel University is located in Mongu the capital of Western Province of Zambia 600 km west of Lusaka -the capital of Zambia.
Mongu happens to be the district in which the seat of the Barotse Royal Establishment is located.
Further it is the venue of the famous and re-known Kuomboka Ceremony of the Lozi people in which The Litunga (i.e. The Lozi King) leaves Lealui( his summer capital) in the Barotse Flood Plains for Limulunga (his winter capital).
This ceremony takes place annually as the Barotse plains get flooded.
Further about 25 km west of Mongu lies the Mighty Zambezi River (locally known as The Liambai) on its journey southwards and then eastwards to the Mighty Victoria Falls and finally to the Indian Ocean.
About 80 km west of Mongu, lies the Liuwa National Park in Kalabo District.
Bethel University is strategically located on a highland overlooking the famous Barotse Plains thus presenting a very beautiful scenery throughout the year.
