Botswana Railways (BR) has announced plans to introduce a tourist train to offer both local and international tourists an opportunity to explore Botswana and the neighboring countries


Delivering a strategy aimed at positioning Francistown as the transport and logistics hub and strategic gateway into the Southern African Development Community (SADC) BR business development director said the idea is at its final stages.


Makuke said the tourist train will take tourists from Francistown in Botswana, Bulawayo and Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe before Livingstone in Zambia and back into the wildlife infested town of Kasane in Botswana.


The train will be in the model of the famous shosholodza train of South Africa where tourists will be served with snacks and beverages while enjoying the beauty of Southern Africa.
