Tsabong Camel Project
The Tsabong Camel project, an initiative of the Botswana Tourism Organisation is attempting to diversify the tourism industry in the country to create jobs and to bring financial and social benefits to rural dwellers. Once fully operational, the project will benefit the communities of Maubelo, Maleshe and Tsabong in the Kgalakgadi District. In addition to the stimulation of tourism activities in the Tsabong area, camel husbandry will be developed, creating exciting entrepreneurial opportunities in the sale of animal by products and other economic ventures. According to Thabo Brian Dithebe, manager of the project, TCP represents one of the many innovative government strategies to move the country away from spheres traditionally associated with tourism.
