Kavango-Zambezi TFCA

In December 2006, the governments of Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe signed an MOU establishing the KAZA TFCA. The TFCA covers an area of 287 000 square kilometres and stretches from the Khaudum National Park in Namibia in the west to Lake Kariba in Zimbabwe in the east (SARDC 2010).Thirty-six protected areas including national parks, game reserves, community conservancies and game management areas are included in the TFCA. One of the main objectives of the TFCA is to merge fragmented wildlife habitats into an interconnected mosaic of protected areas and transboundary wildlife corridors, which will facilitate and enhance the free movement of animals across international boundaries. The area also boasts of numerous attractions such as the Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River between Zambia and Zimbabwe, the San rock paintings in Botswana, and a large wildlife population (SARDC 2010). The area includes at least 3 000 species of plants, 100 of which are endemic to the sub-region, as well as more than 600 bird species. The Caprivi Strip in Namibia provides migration routes for wildlife from Botswana into Angola and Zambia.
