Botswana Tourism Report Q2 2015

BMI View: The Botswana tourism report examines a range of indicators in this emerging tourism market in the heart of Sub-Saharan Africa. Botswana's fledgling tourism market is in the early stages of development, with only limited progress made in the hotel sector, hampered by a limited transport network. With arrivals set to increase steadily over the forecast period, we expect to see more international developers take note of the potential offered by this untouched eco-tourism destination.

Inbound travel to Botswana has been increasing steadily. The country has worked hard to raise its global profile, and its recent inclusion on the UNESCO World Heritage List for the Okavango Delta (the 1000th World Heritage Site) will no doubt help to further raise awareness of Botswana's myriad attractions.

Arrivals are expected to reach just under 3.7mn in 2015, an increase of over 5% on the 2014 arrivals figure.

Similar growth throughout the remainder of the forecast period means we expect arrivals to reach 4.47mn in 2019 - more than double the country's population.
