Khama said this when he was officially opening the Adrian Gale Diamond Museum and Orapa Game Park extension on Saturday in Orapa. 

The president stated that the two facilities will help boost tourism in the area.

He added that the museum and park would attract a high volume of tourists on transit to the Makgadikgadi pans.

The expanded game park and new diamond museum cost P14 million to establish.

The museum was named after the late Orapa, Damtshaa and Letlhakane Mines general manager, Dr Adrian Gale who conceived the ‘Orapa Today Boteti Tomorrow’ initiative.

The initiative is meant to

provide an alternative economy for the Boteti Sub District when diamonds run out in the area.

‘Orapa Today’, is geared towards making Orapa a great place to live and work, while the second part, ‘Boteti Tomorrow’, is intended to build a sustainable alternative economy for the Boteti Sub District, in an effort to leave a lasting legacy beyond diamond mining.

The museum captures and consolidates the significant journey and milestones of the mine since it was established in 1967.

The park is home to a number of wild animals and most notably the rhinoceros.
