Booking a mobile safari in Botswana

In the past week, the ministry of tourism has decided to notify the public regarding future licensing of safari related businesses. http://maunselfdrive4x4.webs.com/apps/blog/ This will effect many foreign owned and operated safari companies. Specifically, those that operate:

(a) guest houses (except corporate guest houses) A License

(b) mobile safaris C License

(c) motorboats F License

(d) tourist transfers E License

(e) camp and caravan sites A License

(f) mekoro H License

The above tourist enterprises are reserved for citizens of Botswana or companies which are wholly owned by citizens of Botswana.

How does this effect us? Before sending a deposit for services, you should confirm with any of these types of Botswana businesses they are licensed to operate (get a copy of the license) and be sure the expiration date is on it.

Something I wonder about. Will Botswana Citizens be able to continue to supply the quality mobile safaris that people demand?

Will many of the top foreign guides move on to other countries?
