Drakensberg Community Projects

The Drakensberg has a few working models using comunity projects based on eco tourism in the region. People and Conservation go together. If we don't get the support of local people, we will lose the war. We need allies not adversaries. There is a profound disconnect between people and conservation.

KwaZulu-Natal and especially the Drakensberg is some of the most pristine areas in South Africa and is presently a major focus of the SA governments ambitious tourism development helping previously disadvantaged people to proserity.
