To ensure the financial sustainability of the park, the long-term goal is to establish Boma-Badingilo as a globally renowned protected area, where visitors can enjoy what is proving to be one of Africa’s most spectacular wilderness areas.
To that end, a full park management team is being built, meetings with stakeholders are being held and business plans prepared and approved. Development of infrastructure plans and scouting for primary headquarters sites for both parks are in the process of being completed.
Successful meetings were held with UNESCO and government representatives to discuss the process of establishing the Boma-Badingilo landscape as a World Heritage Site. The laws and fees relating to tourism are being explored, as well as the options for future tourism activities, including the possibility of aerial guided trips over the park.
Through the steady development of regulated tourism activities over the coming years, economic opportunities will grow.
