KAZA park could be the supernova of all peace parks. A giant undertaking incorporating 280 000 sq.kms ranging from Angola to Namibia's Zambezi


Incorporating the Okavango delta area of Moremi as well as the Chobe National park and the salt pans of the Kalahari.

Also the Sioma Ngwezi national park and Kafue in Zambia to the tropical paradise of Victoria Falls, Hwange national park and lake Kariba.

KAZA PARK will be a "world without borders" where its wildlife can roam freely, where tourists can also travel freely.

A park created for the upliftment of the area and its people

A Memorandum of Understanding
The cornerstone for this initiative was laid in December 2006 when tourism ministers from the five participating countries of Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Angola signed a Memorandum of Understanding that will pave way for the creation of the largest conservation park in the world.A feasibility study undertaken by the South African-based Peace Parks Foundation and the Development Bank of Southern Africa, reports that this transfrontier park could attract as many as eight million tourists to the region annually as well as creating employment for thousands of people and stimulating socio-economic development

This is exciting news for everyone Also proposed is a single visa system to cover the whole of the park. Now that is good news.Already designated as the hub of KAZA Park is Victoria Falls affectionately known as Vic falls with Katima Mulilo the administrative centre

The giant national park will join 14 proclaimed national parks, game and forest reserves as well as game and wildlife management areasThe biodversity of KAZA is as phenomenal as the project itself Savannah, miombo and mopane woodlands, wetlands, approx. 3000 species of plant life (of which some 100 are endemic) and more than 500 species of birdsKAZA's resident wildlife is also impressive containing Africa's largest contiguous elephant population as well as major populations of a wide range of species such as buffalo, hippopotamus, lion, lechwe, roan, sable, eland, zebra, wildebeest, waterbuck, puku, bushbuck, sitatunga, wild dogs, spotted hyenaHuman Inhabitants

The oldest living human inhabitants date back to more than 80,000 years ago. When the "Abantu" settlers moved into this area round about 1750, they found small families of Khoi-Khoi, the Bushmen, living there. Today you still find groups of! Khûng and Khoé Bushmen living as hunter-gatherers amongst the Abantu tribes in obvious peace.
