Tourism Instead of Diamonds?

In Botswana, Africa, diamonds have been almost everything in the economy; but that may someday change.

(BBC) Botswana (southern Africa) is the world’s biggest producer of diamonds and an economic success story in Africa – but some experts fear that in 20 years time its reserves may be exhausted. Tourism is now becoming increasingly important as the country anticipates a time when diamonds can no longer provide 50% of its annual revenue.

Less than two million humans inhabit Botswana, but animals are numerous. Indeed, this country could become an ideal tourist attraction someday. The government has devised a plan to expand and develop tourism, hoping to attract a wide range of foreign visitors.
