BOTSWANA: TOURISTS VOLUME INCREASES IN NGAMILAND
Maun region has seen the numbers of local and international tourists increasing tremendously this festive season compared to past seasons
This was said by Botswana Tourism Organization (BTO)’s tourism development manager, Ms Bigani Sethume on December 30 in Maun.
She said this development would improve the local economy as hotels received high numbers of bookings. Tourists also spend their money on local products, a move that improves the local people’s lives, Ms Sethume said in an interview.
She attributed this growth partly to the fact that government, through BTO, was aggressively marketing the tourism product locally and internationally
We will continue to sell this country as a tourism destination of choice, stated Ms Sethume.
Also, she explained that the region saw an increase in tourism because of its beauty and abundant flora and fauna.
Ms Sethume was also happy that Batswana were starting to realise that the country has a good tourism product, which was at par with that of other countries with oceans and beautiful coastlines.
