The Department of Wildlife and National Parks (DWNP) in Botswana‘s Ministry of Environment, Natural Resources Conservation and Tourism will with effect from April 1, 2020, stop accepting all foreign currency as means of payment, it has announced.

In a statement released by the government of Botswana, clients are advised to use local currency of the Botswana Pula and credit cards or debit cards where points of sale machines are available for payments.

“The public is advised to use bureau exchange service providers to facilitate foreign exchange services,” read the statement.

The DWNP has the key obligation to support the protection and administration of Botswana’s wildlife and fisheries, including protected areas, wildlife management areas and several water bodies with fisheries.
