Dallas – The Botswana Rhino Conservation project of Wilderness Safaris – active in Botswana and South Africa – won the environmental category of the 2016 Tourism of Tomorrow Awards.
The awards were presented at the global summit of the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) taking place in Dallas.
Since 2000 Wilderness Safaris, working with Botswana’s government, began to translocate black and white rhinos back into the Okavango. During 2014 and 2015 the company facilitated the largest ever international black rhino translocation to date. The company has now established viable breeding populations in the region.
