Mentioned in The Fifth Elephant this is a port city located on the Rim Ocean coast of Howandaland. Sir Samuel Vimes sent the Assassin the Hon Eustace Bassingly-Gore to Ghat in chains, and paid the captain of the ship AM$1000 not to untie him until at least Zambingo. Known to surrounded by jungles, where Bassingly-Gore's knowledge of poisons would undoubtedly be useful, but not as useful as a knowledge of antidotes... Also it is misspelled as 'Zabingo' on the map. The Compleat Discworld Atlas identifies Zambingo as the capital city of the Kingdom of Howondalaland, and its resident ruler as King Samuel the fourth.
