The Smoke That Thunders

Welcome to the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier (KAZA) 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.

But there is so much more to it than Victoria Falls, as we learnt from Jillian Blackbeard of the Victoria Falls Regional Tourism Association.
