South Africans and Americans want to invest in Bicuar National Park

South African and American entrepreneurs are interested in investing in Bicuar National Park, located in Huila. The announcement was made by the park's administrator, José Maria Candungo.

According to him, the entrepreneurs are linked to the tourism sector and the interest was shown during some meetings held in Huila.

José Maria Candungo, in declarations to the Angop agency, said that the Bicuar National Park needs a change and, if the investment arrives, there is a lot of work ahead: the space will have to be restored, a touristic itinerary will have to be outlined and the access roads will have to be improved. This is the only way the park will become a profitable place, he added.

In addition, the administrator spoke of the need to bring some species - such as zebra, black buffalo, cahumba and impalas - to the park, since these already existed, but are now extinct on this site.

The Bicuar National Park was created in 1938, initially as a hunting reserve, and in 1964 it became a National Park.
