The world’s largest terrestrial transfrontier conservation area (TFCA), the Kavango Zambezi (KAZA), has received a major boost to its ecological and socio-economic development, in the shape of a 16.9 million Euro contribution from the Dutch Postcode Lottery.

The oldest bridge in the Maun area, situated within the Kavango Zambezi-Trans frontier Conservation Area (KAZA TFCA) component of Botswana at the Matlapana village was recently rehabilitated with financial support from the Federal Republic of German through KfW to the KAZA TFCA. The rehabilitation project, which started on the 11th of April 2019 was completed on 23rd December 2019.

On 24th February 2020, Kasane, Botswana, the Minister of Environment, Natural Resources Conservation and Tourism, Honorable Phildha Nani Kereng, together with the German Ambassador to Botswana, His Excellency Mr. Ralf Breth launched and handed over three projects funded by the German Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development, through the German Development Bank (KfW) support to the Kavango–Zambezi (KAZA) Transfrontier Conservation Area (TFCA).

The Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA TFCA) is hosting the 2019 edition of the Land Rover Experience Tour (LET).

The Kaza Carnivore Conservation Coalition (KCCC), hosted a core working group members’ workshop in Livingstone, Zambia from 23rd – 25th May 2018.

A 15.5-million Euros funding commitment from the Federal Republic of Germany through the German Development Bank, KfW, was signed at a ceremony held at the Botswana Ministry of Environment, Natural Resources Conservation and Tourism in Gaborone today.

KAZA TFCA Partner States are happy to announce the appointment of the Dr Nyambe Nyambe as the Executive Director of the KAZA TFCA Secretariat as from 16 April 2018.

“The State of KAZA Symposium 2016 was held as a celebration of KAZA’s 10 years of existence since signing the Memorandum of Understanding in December 2006 and provided a platform to showcase its achievements against set objectives as well as highlight key challenges and discuss priorities going forward.

The KAZA TFCA has identified Tourism as one of the key socio-economic pillars of the TFCA. However, one of the major constraints in facilitating cross-border tourism development is the requirement for tourists to obtain visas specific to each of the countries.
