Simalaha Community Conservancy

Simalaha stands as a unique African wilderness, where wildlife and people harmoniously share the same space beneath the vast African sky. This remarkable conservancy, driven by the visionary leadership of Chief Nyambo Yeta of the Sesheke Chiefdom and Chief Sekute of the Sekute Chiefdom, serves as a vital link between Botswana’s Chobe National Park and Zambia’s Kafue National Park. Notably, it contributes to the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA TFCA), the world’s largest transfrontier conservation initiative spanning five countries: Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

Through a partnership with the Peace Parks Foundation, this vision has transformed into reality. Reintroducing a diverse array of wildlife species such as wildebeest, zebra, lechwe, puku, impala, waterbuck, giraffe, eland, and buffalo to the plains, with more species slated for reintroduction, echoes the resplendent wildlife abundance of bygone eras. The Simalaha Community Conservancy Trust and Peace Parks meticulously navigate each step, sensitizing and supporting local communities to embrace these transformative changes. As a result, wildlife can once again traverse ancient migration routes safely, with occasional sightings of elephants retracing historical pathways.

Simalaha Horse Safaris stands as the conservancy’s inaugural tourism partner, offering a unique riding experience blending wildlife encounters and cultural immersion. With knowledgeable guides, comfortable bush accommodation, invigorating hot showers, and sturdy horses, visitors embark on unforgettable journeys through this remarkable landscape.
