Zangvebar or Zanguebar (Polish: Zangwebar) is an overseas land with which the Northern Kingdoms trade.[1] Knowledge about the realm is not very widespread among Nordlings, most people know it as a mysterious land with a very different fauna, like black horses with white stripes (zebras)[1] and hyenas.[2] It's also home to creatures called Cynocephali.[1][3]

It lies south of Nilfgaardian Empire along with Ofir and half-mythical lands of Hann and Barsa.[4] However, Nilfgaardians tend to look on them as barbarians.[5]
