ACCOMMODATION IN SIMALAHA COMMUNITY CONSERVANCY
Approximately 120km from Livingstone, bordering the mighty Zambezi River, lies the Simalaha Community Conservancy. The joint vision of the Sesheke and Sekute Chiefdoms to create an environment where people and wildlife can sustainably coexist as they once did in decades past, has become a reality with the help of Peace Parks Foundation.
Forming part of the world’s largest Transfrontier Conservation Area, the Kvango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area, the Simalaha Community Conservancy has successfully reintroduced wildebeest, zebra, red lechwe, puku, hartebeest, impala, waterbuck, giraffe, buffalo, eland and sable to the plains.
Currently there is one tourism operator within the Conservancy, Simalaha Horse Safaris. The Conservancy benefits from concession fees paid by the operator, as well as the training and employment of local members in the construction and running of the tented camp.
