Getaway (South Africa)

Size Matters


At 519 912km², KAZA is 27 times bigger than Kruger National Park, larger than Greece and Germany combined and nearly twice the size of the United Kingdom. Straddling five internatio­nal borders, where Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana, Angola and Namibia converge in the Kavango and Zambezi river basins, KAZA includes no fewer than 20 national parks, 85 forest reserves, 22 conservanc­ies, three World Heritage sites, half the continent’s elephants and is home to three million people. No one descriptio­n can encompass the tremendous diversity of this region, this mosaic of forests, desert, savannas and wetlands, floodplain­s, swamps and a salt pan.
