Installation of boardwalk

Installation of boardwalk

The park supports the development of tourism. One of the prioritized sites for future tourism is Bekalikali Bai where elephants roam regularly – so far only at night. Bekalikali Bai can be reached from the Lokofa patrol station. The 11km-stretch between Lokofa and Bekalikali Bai leads through swampy forests meaning wet feet for hikers. To make that hike easier boardwalks have been constructed bridging the swampy parts of the path. Early 2019 an observation tower will be built in Bekalikali Bai to observe animals in the bai namely elephants but also antilopes and birds.
