The Trans Kalahari Corridor (TKC) was jointly built by the Namibian and Botswana Governments in the 1990s with an initial investment of approximately N$850 million and was officially opened in 1998.
The Trans Kalahari Corridor is a tripartite trans-boundary corridor that stretches over 1,900 km along Walvis Bay-Windhoek-Gaborone-Johannesburg. It is supported by a railway line from the Port of Walvis Bay to Gobabis (via Windhoek), where transhipment facilities are available, and continues from Lobatse in Botswana.
The TKC is a strategic route-of-choice that provides linkages between the Americas and East European markets into the southern African hinterland. The Trans Kalahari Corridor is complemented by the Maputo Corridor on the east coast of Africa, thus forming a transport corridor over the entire breadth of southern Africa. The TKC is managed by the Trans Kalahari Corridor Secretariat (click hee for more details).
