This was one of several areas chosen for future cooperation between the two countries, according to a note from the Presidency of the Republic, which VerAngola had access to.

Regarding these animals, João Lourenço – who is in Botswana on a state visit – made it known that will be accommodated, above all in parks in the east of the country.

On the occasion, the head of state also said that there was a need to act together in preparations for the corridors for transferring elephants from northern Botswana to the parks of Mavinga and Luengue-Luina, in Angola, writes Angop.

The President of the Republic also highlighted that with the animals in the parks, the tourist flow could increase: "With elephants in the parks, we believe that the attraction of tourists will be guaranteed", he said, quoted by Angop.

Other domains relate to the KASA Project. According to the note from the Presidency of the Republic, the country will benefit "from Tswanese expertise in the development of the KASA Project (eco-tourism within the scope of actions linked to the Okavango Delta)".

Regarding this project, João Lourenço referred that Angola is a signatory, but has not yet proceeded to ratify the agreement, something that will be done shortly. "We will do this soon", he indicated, quoted by Angop.

The head of state also made it known that Angola will start exploring its parks and natural reserves, especially in the field of conservation of KAZA, in Cuando Cubango, Moxico and Bié, where the natural reserve parks of Mavinga, Luiana and Cameia are located, writes Angop.

It should be noted that João Lourenço traveled to Botswana on Thursday, where he is making a state visit. His return to the country is scheduled for Saturday.
