Park Revenue Generation

A tourism economy is a strong driving force for development and is an important element in our efforts to support local economic development and job opportunities for the communities around Pendjari National Park. In 2022, a greater emphasis was placed on community-based tourism, with hiking and an enhanced business development plan in development.

The revitalisation of Pendjari is one of the 45 flagship projects of the investment programme "Revealing Benin" launched in December 2016 by the Presidency of Benin. Tourism is one of the strategic sectors targeted by this programme, the objective being to take advantage of the historical, cultural and natural heritage of Benin to develop a tourist industry that provides strong economic outcomes and jobs.
