Tourism, like mining or manufacturing can deplete the natural resources on which it survives, particularly if it is ill-planned and mismanaged. Paradoxically, tourism is a natural resource dependent industry and the natural and cultural environment of destination countries provides one of the major magnets for tourism (Mathieseon and Wall (1982). Yet, tourism can cause a lot of harm to the natural landscape. The purpose of this paper is to assess the impacts of tourism on natural resource use and management in Botswana. Not much bas been researched about the effects of tourism on natural resources in the country thus far, despite the fact that the industry is growing rapidly in Botswana.
