Tourism Without Boundaries


Many research projects have already been conducted in the KAZA region under the auspices of national, regional and international academic and non-academic institutions. If conducted in a protected area, permission is sought from the relevant national authorities. For information about how to apply for research permits, please visit the relevant KAZA partner country websites. To conduct research projects under the auspices of the KAZA TFCA authorities, please contact the KAZA Secretariat. An incredible depth of information has been collected by academicians over many years in the KAZA component areas.
