 To All:Tour Operators

Recreational Fishing and Subsistence fishing

We refer to the above subject matter:


The Public in particular fishing camps and Lodges is informed that all subsistence fishing activities are now

reserved for citizens only.  As for Recreational fishing the Department of Wildlife and National Parks will

not issue Recreational fishing licenses for individuals and no Foreigner will be allowed to fish in both rivers

and dams in Botswana. A Foreigner who wishes to fish will only do so through a licensed fishing camp

or lodge. Therefore fishing camps and lodges are to apply for Recreational fishing licenses for their clients.
