From very recent news coming from the Government of Botswana, Wilderness Safaris, Botswana’s largest tourism business, with strong conservation and community ideals, has come through the latest round of discussions on top of other air line companies including SA’s CemAir.

Wilderness, which operates small aircraft under Wilderness Air, beat South Africa’s CemAir at the last hurdle of the bidding process, Kabelo Ebineng, permanent secretary in the transport and communication ministry, said.

“Looking at what we want to achieve with the airline, Wilderness has been chosen by the cabinet as the preferred bidder,” Ebineng told a parliamentary committee. “We expect a deal to be completed in the next 9-12 months.”

Wilderness Air currently operates over 30 aircraft in the Zambesia region of Africa including countries Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia and Botswana.
