The facilities were part of phase one of the project which is estimated to have cost $2 million. The bank will decide on phase two of the project.
Malawi Tourism website says, as part of the project, “Money will also go towards improving the road network and infrastructure in the park.
“In turn, this will increase the available areas that visitors and park management can reach, which will make it more difficult for poaching to happen.”Advertisement
