Game Farming to Boost Botswana Tourism Revenue

Tshekedi Khama, minister of environment, natural resources, conservation and tourism, Botswana, revealed, tourism was flourishing with over two million tourists visiting the country in the past two years, and that tourism could further benefit by game farming.

As part of attracting further tourism revenue, Khama said the vision of the Ministry was to ensure that tourists visited all parts of the country to enjoy culture and cuisine and witness properly conserved wildlife. He said plans were underway to consult Batswana on game farming and/or ranching, which would see locals rearing wild animals on ranches.

He enumerated the advantages of game farming, adding that the farm would create employment for some of the residents of the local village, who were already benefiting by providing labour for the fencing project.
