Case Study: !Khuin !Kwa Kalahari Experience
Empowering the ‡Khomani-San community through conservation & tourism
Khuin !Kwa Kalahari Experience (KK) offers authentic eco-tours within and around the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. The enterprise is led by the ‡Khomani San community and the tours embrace the traditions of the ‡Khomani San culture. This offers visitors not only the opportunity to see the extraordinary landscapes and biodiversity of the region, but also to experience life through the eyes of the ‡Khomani San descendants, one of the oldest groups of people on the planet. Through its inclusive approach, KK provides the community with employment opportunities, builds local knowledge and skills in conservation and tourism, and aligns the needs and values of the community with conservation.
