Let's Go To KAZA

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

    Conservation Area

    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 wetlands.

    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.
