  • Extensive advertisement to the international world about the existing tourist potentials with an aim of making the outside people aware of such existing potentials. This will fetch a lot of visitors into Uganda.
  • The government has encouraged the development of the private local tour operations so as to provide efficient and modern reliable facilities in transportation.
  • Massive campaign and education has been launched targeting local people especially encroachers and poachers to avoid their acts and protect wildlife resource.
