Welcome to the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area

The KAZA TFCA is enormous, larger than Germany and Austria combined and nearly twice as large as the United Kingdom. It lies in the Kavango and Zambezi river basins where Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe converge.

Jewels in the crown of this spectacular array of protected areas are the 15,000 km2 Okavango Delta, an explosion of green and blue in parched landscape – the world’s largest inland delta, and the awe inspiring tumbling cataracts of the Victoria Falls, a World Heritage Site and one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

The KAZA Dream

Kaza

Conservation Area

This vast expanse is richly endowed with a great diversity of ecosystems and landscapes. These range from the dense and dark canopy of the tropical, dry-forest of north-western Zambia, through a mosaic of woodlands, to sun-soaked tides of rolling grasslands, the parched vastness of Makgadikgadi and drifts of waterlilies floating on papyrus and reed-shrouded, shimmering

Partners & Stakeholders

Local communities participate with enthusiasm in management of the TFCA through the Transboundary Natural Resources Managment Forum. The aim of this forum is to maximize skills and resources to promote sustainable land use, conservation of wildlife and landscapes, and rural development.

Milestones

In just five years, the KAZA programme has surged ahead in leaps and bounds. Here are just a few of our achievements:

Tourism Without Boundaries

The KAZA TFCA launched the KAZA UniVisa Pilot Project between the Republic of Zambia and Zimbabwe on 28th November 2014. This SADC initiative will be rolled out to the rest of the SADC region following success in the KAZA TFCA. The implementation of the KAZA UniVisa will mean that tourists will no longer have to apply for multiple visas, thus saving time and money and opening the doors to the free movement of tourists visiting this African wonderland.

Attractions

Enhancing the wealth of wildlife and the array of beautiful landscapes is a bevy of diverse cultures offering tourists an outstandingly varied experience of regional lifestyle, heritage, arts and crafts, language, music and cuisine.

KAZA Conservation Area

Too vast to describe with any accuracy, the sheer scope of this park bewilders the mind with a range of experiences, from ‘the smoke that thunders’ at Victoria Falls, to the ‘great river’ Zambezi.

Travelling in KAZA

The KAZA TFCA offers some of Africa’s best game viewing. This huge area, much of which is a vast and beautiful wilderness of deserts, savannas and endless marshes, is a safari connoisseur’s dream destination. Allow yourself sufficient time to explore the region by 4×4, mokoro (traditional canoe) and to relax in superlative accommodation.

Health and Safety

In general, health risks for most tourists are low provided that you stick to established routes and accommodation facilities. However it is essential to obtain informed medical advice from a medical practitioner or institute with experience of southern African pathogens and disease.
