However, the borders are defined by rivers, and I can't see any bridges over them in the specific area. Adding Angola to a route to get to five countries looks tempting, but it's too far away.
I should have clarified, at the point where Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia become close, there is the Zambezi river, and both Zambia and Botswana control facing opposing banks of the river for a very short distance, of the order of a hundred metres, and there is an active border crossing by ferry between those two countries across the river where a Botswana road comes to the river bank opposite a Zambian road. So it acts in practice as though Namibia and Zimbabwe are separated by that hundred metres or so. Now the actual disposition of territory under the water has not been specified, so I suppose in theory there could be an 4-country point under the water. But no one is arguing because in practice the territory in Namibia adjacent to this point is a remote, and there is in practice no direct traffic from Zimbabwe to Namibia, and there is no Zimbabwean or Namibian facility to cross the river in the immediate area - the nearest Zimbabwean crossing is at Victoria Falls some 20-30km or so to the east, and a Namibian crossing a similar distance to the west.
