Tour's Location

Botswana Nxai Pan National Park

why is Botswana tourism expansive?

The country practices low volume high cost tourism policy as a conservation method, to have fewer places in the wilderness to camp. leading to the high demand in the limited camps increasing costs of safari access, this limits over crowding during animal sights and keeping the parks as natural as possible.
