WILDLIFE AND LOCAL PEOPLE

Conservation concerns and the wellbeing of wildlife is an ongoing challenge, especially the progress of integrating indigenous people into a sustainable model.

This initiative encourages a cooperative attitude amongst residents in the surrounding area of the wildlife reserve.

If local communities see the benefit of revenue earned from travelers visiting these areas, they will realize the value of the wildlife resource and habitat.

The positive spin-off for the area from tourism is the creation of jobs, better infrastructure, skill development, empowerment and a general improvement of lifestyle quality.
