It has never been easier to experience the highlights of Southern Africa while travelling through Namibia and neighbouring countries!


Peace Parks - bridging national borders, re-uniting eco-systems that were separated by them for more than a century, and re-opening ancient game migration routes so that  wildlife can prosper and assist in the recovery of devastated wilderness areas -, were only one man's dream, until the late 1900's.
In 2007, this dream turned into reality for Namibia. The border posts with South Africa at the Mata Mata Gate of the Kgalagadi National Park and at Sendelingsdrift on the Gariep River in the heart of the Richtersveld Trans-Frontier Park, were re-opened.
A third big project involving Namibia and Angola is aimed at the protection of the Namib Desert to the north and south of the Kunene River and well underway. Further steps towards growing the size of these nature conservation areas and creating save "corridors" for migrating game through connected Conservancies are in the pipeline.

The scale of the Peace Park projects is almost beyond comprehension. They are happening across the entire Southern African Region from Kenya and Tanzania in East Africa all the way south to the Cape of Good Hope. Taking in consideration that Namibia alone is almost equal in land mass to Central Europe and that close to 20% of its surface are protected areas, then adding only the three neighbouring countries along the Trans Kalahari Highway and their famous huge wildlife sanctuaries to the picture already provides a glimpse of the mind-boggling extent of these undertakings.
In practical terms, the cross-border parks and game corridors mean that tourists will be able in future to travel on many different routes through interlinked nature conservation areas from one Southern African country to the next.         

Rural African communities living along those route, - many of them impoverished because of their remote bush villages' lack of economic development potential -, are to benefit from the business and employment opportunities created in the wake of such new developments and tourism activities.

We will report on these "new
generation" cross-border tour
routes, as they become viable
options for visitors to Namibia.
Here are the first perfect examples:

The colourful Strelitzia
 is one of Southern Africa's
most dazzling decorative plants.
In Namibia, it only thrives in parks and
private gardens, and if protected from
the harsh sun and sufficiently watered.
