Overview

The travel and tourism sector in Botswana contributed BWP8,150.2m to the economy in 2011.  The industry supported 45,000 jobs, including those supported indirectly, accounting for 7.6% of total employment (World Travel and Tourism Council – WTTC 2011).  This placed it 124th in the world (out of 181 countries) in terms of the industry’s relative contribution to the economy, with a 6.5% share of GDP, compared to the world average of 14% (WTTC 20122).  In 2010 the country saw 2,145,000 tourist arrivals.  The largest source market of visitors is other African nations, dominated by Zimbabwe and South Africa.  The overseas visitor market is predominantly from the UK and the United States.  In 2011 visitor exports generated BWP6,496.1m, constituting 15.3% of total exports from the country.  The government has reformed its tourism law as part of efforts to tighten control over the industry players.  In 2010 this saw the country’s official tourism board change from the Botswana Tourism Board to the Botswana Tourism Organisation, which acts as a separate organisation, mostly independent from government duties.  It markets the country, classifies travel accommodation facilities, including an eco-certification system, and promotes investment in the travel and tourism industry.  The industry is overseen by the Ministry of Environment, Wildlife and Tourism.  Workers within the sector are represented by the Hospitality and Tourism Association of Botswana.
