More info: Camp Kuzuma, borders the Chobe National Park of Botswana and the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. 200 000 elephants roam in this busy corridor - including massive breeding herds, bachelor herds and lone ranging bulls. The elephants move thousands of kilometres across the country’s wildlands, using ancient routes to pass through private farms, national parks and towns and move deep into neighbouring countries.
Data from satellite tracking tags on 120 elephants in southern Africa have identified a suite of wildlife movement corridors across five southern African countries, suggesting the importance of cross-border coordination. Wide-ranging movements of elephants include dispersal from northern Botswana north into Angola and south toward the Kalahari Desert. Research findings have suggested that open and unimpeded movement corridors can help reduce conflict with human residents while blocked corridors can push elephants and other wildlife into new developments or villages, resulting in increased conflict.
