Botswana: A top Tourist Destination in Africa

Botswana has been listed among Africa’s top ten most competitive tourist destinations. According to the World Economic Forum Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report 2015. Botswana is ranked 7th out of 9 other countries yet South Africa is first. The report states that the most competitive countries in Africa had benefited from early investment into the tourism sector by their governments. Other countries on the list are Seychelles, Mauritius, Namibia, Kenya, Cape Verde, Tanzania, Rwanda and Zambia in tenth place.However countries like Uganda don't seem to attract tourism significantly. This is because the governments do not seem to take tourism seriously hence have not invested seriously in the sector. High time Uganda government thinks twice about investment in tourism.
