Kavango Zambezi Trans-frontier Conservation Area (KAZA TFCA)
"If you're a tour operator selling Africa, you need to know about KAZA.
KAZA (the Kavango Zambezi Trans-frontier Conservation Area) is the world’s largest terrestrial TFCA, at approximately 520,000km².
Spanning the borders of Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe, it offers memorable wildlife encounters, safari adventures and authentic cultural experiences.
During 2023 we will help to “Uncover KAZA” for you. This will include ideas for itineraries, products and areas that you may not have come across before."

Occupying part of the Okavango and Zambezi river basins, the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (a.k.a KAZA) combines 36 formally proclaimed protected areas, game reserves, forest reserves, game management areas, communal lands and conservation and tourism concession areas.
KAZA is home to the largest transboundary elephant population in the world and provides critical habitat for other endangered wildlife and birds. It includes popular highlights such as Victoria Falls, Chobe and Hwange national parks, as well as many off-the-beaten-track safari destinations and other activities that tourists and tour operators may not be aware of.
The KAZA Trans-frontier Conservation Area treaty was signed 12 years ago by the governments of the five member states. The aim is to coordinate best practice and to agree and execute a clear and common strategy to sustainably manage and protect the ecosystem and the communities who live within it.
Tourism without boundaries
By establishing conservation corridors between protected areas, KAZA aims to support both nature and local people - as migratory animals and tribal lands should not be confined by modern geographical borders! As well as becoming the ultimate safari destination, KAZA is encouraging rural communities in the different regions to share their knowledge and traditions, in order to preserve a rich cultural heritage which visitors can also experience.
