South Africa's former President, Thabo Mbeki (left), and Botswana's former President, Festus Mogae, during the official launch of southern Africa's first Transfrontier Peace Park, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, on Friday, 12 May 2000. A Peace Parks Foundation initiative, the 42 000kmē park comprises the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park in South Africa and the Gemsbok National Park in Botswana. A life-size bronze sculpture of two running oryx by Alan Ainslie was unveiled by the two presidents during this prestigious occasion. The two running antelope symbolise the co-operation between the two countries, and the greater freedom of movement wildlife in the park can now experience with the lifting of the fences between the two parks.
