The 2018 Beijing Summit of the Forum for China – Africa Cooperation contained a lot of ingredients that spoke of the hope and mutual benefit between China and Africa, said director of Amble Travel and Tours, Gao Lemmenyane, during the Summit which took place on Sept. 3 and 4, 2018.

Gao Lemmenyane, who runs a tour company in Botswana, said, “As a country, Botswana is quite excited about what has come out of the interactions over the last couple of days, and we are really looking forward to now implementing the agreements that were signed in this period,” adding, “as an individual, I’m hoping that my business will derive benefits from this.”

He went on to say that Botswana is a beautiful country, with sights such as the Okavango Delta and the Chobe River. He encourages Chinese people to visit the country to see a wonderful diversity of animals in their natural environment rather than in the zoo and learn more about the country’s rich cultural heritage. He notes that coming to Botswana will allow visitors to get a taste of African hospitality and learn from the African people.

Lemmenyane added that currently, most of the tourists visiting Botswana are from Europe and America, but he hopes that through a forum like this, more people from China will learn about Botswana and make the trip to appreciate the country’s beauty, and the peace and serenity that exists in Africa.
