We have partnered with CapeNature on a pilot initiative with the aim of developing sustainable adventure tourism in nature reserves to:
- increase the positive socio-economic impacts on local communities living within and near the reserves
- increase funds for environmental conservation
Why? Nature reserves are a big draw for tourists visiting South Africa. Within the Western Cape, however, there are many reserves with huge untapped tourism potential. With funding cuts impacting on conservation, sustainable income-generation has become more important. Plus, there is an increasing need to generate opportunities for disadvantaged communities living near, or within the reserves.
