HOORC tourism specialist Dr Joseph Mbaiwa has just returned from a Conservation International workshop in Kang where this week participants from government, NGOs, local experts, tourism businesses and researchers discussed opportunities for tourism development within the Western Kgalagadi Conservation Corridor. The Corridor runs between the Central Kalahari Game Reserve and the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Discussions focused on animal movements between the two parks and their potential to attract tourists. Mr Moses Selebatso at Conservation International’s Botswana office is the contact person for more information about the project to manage the corridor .
