Supporting Mosi-o-Tunya National Park

Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park

The working group at the beginning of 2021 agreed a programme of action which includes support to the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, the smallest of Zambia’s parks but the most visited given its proximity to Livingstone city.  Guiding training, on the ground support in anti-poaching, educational programmes are all part of this work.

Wildlife Dispersal Areas

In recognition of the issues of land encroachment plus human-animal conflict, we will be working on a long term project to increase the amount of protected land and forests to support our wildlife movements and avoid conflict. This is ambitious and will require good co-operation among a number of stakeholders who operate within this field of work.

Human-animal conflict

Whilst CATS is the foremost body working on mitigation of human-animal conflict, Destination Livingstone is also investigating ways in which it can assist in this area.  The production of a “Community Guide Handbook” is underway with the purpose of training a number of young people from the residential areas most affected by this issue.  In addition, ways in which families can protect their properties and especially their gardens, are being investigated.
