KHUTSE GAME RESERVE (KGR) STILL OPEN DESPITE ONGOING FIRES
Khutse Game Reserve is still open for tourists despite the inferno that has reportedly burned down more than 50 percent of the park.
KGR assistant park manager Johnson Lebotse was quoted by Botswana Television saying the park is still open to tourists.
He also revealed that no animal deaths have been caused by the fires apart from probably the reptiles.
The fires started recently and burned swathes of Khutse and the southern section of Central Kalahari Game Reserve.
Teams from Ministry of Environment, Natural Resources Conservation and Tourism , Botswana Defence Force and volunteers from Kaudwane have been working hard day and night to put out the fires.
