Botswana Ecotourism Certification
The Botswana Ecotourism Certification System covers more than 240 standards encompassing the following: environmental management, cultural resources protection and community development, socio-economic responsibilities and fundamental ecotourism criteria. The system uses a three-tiered structure (levels) designed to incorporate the broadest cross-section of tourism operations while still distinguishing an urban facility, from a true ecotourism product in a pristine natural environment. The three-tiered structure promotes progress and is designed to encourage operators to improve their performance towards achievement of the next higher level.
Botswana Tourism Organization
Botswana Tourism Organization (BTO) provides tourism information and promotion of Botswana's natural appeal; the stunning and seemingly endless wilderness, prolific wildlife, cultural diversity, and welcoming people. BTO works to grade and classify tourist accommodations so that they are consistent with consumer expectations and industry standards. The Botswana government's conservation and wildlife management policies, along with BTO's commitment to responsible tourism and ecotourism strategies, work in concert to ensure that Botswana's tourism is sustainable for its inhabitants and future generations, while contributing meaningfully to the national economy.
