Buzi River (Portuguese: Rio Búzi) is a river in Mozambique. Buzi flows eastward through the Manica and Sofala provinces of Mozambique. It then empties to the Mozambique Channel west of Beira, forming an estuary.

The Buzi River is 250 kilometres (155 mi) long, with a drainage basin 31,000 square kilometres (12,000 sq mi) in size. Its mean annual discharge is 79 m³/s (2,790 cfs) at its mouth.[1]

It often causes floods, frequently forming a floodplain together with the larger Pungwe River. Dombé and Búzi are situated on the banks of the river.
