The colors are nice.
I agree that the red box on the continent map would look better with no fill, just a red stroke.
Also, I find it difficult to tell which rivers the labels are referring too, since the labels are horizontal and sometimes cross two rivers. Align the rivers along the path like you did with Shire River. If they don't fit, use R. for River, or you could probably take the type size down a few points
I agree with the comments above. In addition, I have noticed a white/gray bar down the left margin, and some purple/gray artifacts along the Mozambique coast. If there was a scale bar, I could tell you more precisely how big your city/town/village indicators are but i'm guessing they are about 20-30 miles square. It leaves a whole lot of confusion. For example, is Tete on the Luia, Revube, or Zambize River? Is Chipata in Malawi or Zambia? Is Mutare in Mozambique or Zimbabwe?
I would think that your indicator map of Africa could fit inside your map with a little over the sea/ocean and Mozambique. That way you could avoid the huge white bar at the base when printed. If you can't cover Mozambique, you could still move it up some over the unknown waterbody and limit the size of the blank area.
I would probably redraw the rivers as simple lines rather than polygons. They look overly detailed for this scale.
