Park Revenue Generation

Today, Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve and its surrounds can boast renovated lodges and campsites that welcome visitors in increasing numbers. In 2022, revenue generated from entry fees and other tourism-associated activities reported a 100% increase from the previous year, and some 3,000 visitors, both international and local, enjoyed the reserve.

A Youth Hostel was completed in June 2022 with senior chiefs from Bangweulu Wetlands as the first guests in the 32-bed tented facility. Livezi Wilderness Camp, another self-catering option, is planned to open in 2023/2024.
