BIOKAVANGO monthly community of practice gatherings

At its second Community of Practice gathering, which was attended by HOORC staff, representatives from Ministry of Environmental Affairs , tourist operators and business people, Mr.Kent Burger gave a brief talk about the challenges of locating new tourism sites in the Okavango Delta. In his talk, Mr. Burger challenged the audience to look beyond the "way we have been doing things" attitude and capitalise on the potential that the different behaviours of the Delta has to offer. This challenges the tourism operators to come up with different marketing strategies which would attract a different kind of tourist, a shift from the traditional high cost and low volume approach.

For more information on these monthly meetings, you can contact Anastacia Makati or Olebogeng Suwe at the HOORC Library at 6817241.
