In a world with so much to see and do, travellers gravitate to countries that allow them ease of entry to their drawcard destinations.

So the news that Botswana is considering being included in the Kaza uni-visa, is great news. Tourism Update reports Botswana and Zimbabwe held discussions around the visa inclusion to promote during the Bi-National Commission meeting  held in Harare last week. 

The visa is valid for nationals of 65 countries, and cost $50.   

The visa came into existence in 2014 and was meant to run as six-month pilot. It currently only exists between Zimbabwe and Zambia, is valid for 30-days and allows holders to do a day-trip to Chobe National Park in Botswana.

However, Phase 2 will see the visa extended to Angola, Namibia - now with Botswana's willingness to join based on its possibility to great improve tourism numbers to the country.
