On 28 June 2023, The Business Weekly & Reviewsent a detailed inquiry to Dr Kabelo Senyatso, Director at the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (DWNP), about whether the government was still forging ahead with its decision to lease out eight lodges along the Chobe riverfront with a cumulative 400 rooms.
