ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)

The government has recently started a twenty year plan to develop the country's tourist industry. However, that development is hampered by drought, political instability, and on-and-off wars.

In addition, land mines and unexploded ordnance remain a serious problem throughout the country. There are reports of accidents and numerous incidents where vehicles and people occasionally detonate mines.
