about TKCS


The Trans Kalahari CorridorBSecretariat (TKCS) is tripartite trans-boundary Corridor Management Institution which was established with a political and economic vision to pursue or contribute towards deeper regional integration programmes of SADC, SACU and indeed NEPAD. 

This is to be achieved by linking the port of Walvis Bay on the west coast to the port of Maputo on the east coast of Africa – Coast to Coast Corridor (C2C). The TKC connects highways of Namibia commencing at the port of Walvis Bay through Kanye and Lobatse in Botswana to South Africa mainly to the industrial heartland of the greater Gauteng.

This corridor is known for providing a short transport link across the entire breadth of the Southern Africa subcontinent. Compared to the traditional southern Namibia routes to South Africa’s Gauteng, TKC cuts the distance by 400 kilometres, making it a more preferred route providing cost effective logistical advantages to users. The TKC as it is well known by users therefore provides a direct route for the increasing demand for trade between Southern Africa and Europe and the Americas.
