Community Cultural Identity in Nature - Tourism Gateway Areas: Maun Village, Okavango Delta World Heritage Site, Botswana

Susan Osireditse Keitumetse and Michelle Genevieve Pampiri

This paper focuses on our research in Maun village, near Okavango Delta, a World Heritage Site (OD-WHS), Botswana. We hoped to illuminate the presence and strength of ‘dormant’ community cultural identities, and to learn how they are constituted in cultural values and tied to landscapes that have become re-branded as nature-tourism areas. To unveil these ‘dormant’ cultural values, we conducted ethnographic interviews among the Maun village traditional leaders, Dikgosi (Chiefs), who are cultural custodians of communal heritage, to identify and re-acknowledge cultural and heritage values from communal memory. The aim was to create a balance between the nature tourism identity and the more fluid socio-cultural identities of people. Our results show that Maun village has communal cultural values that can complement the gateway tourism image. This work provides a model for other nature-tourism gateway communities who wish to salvage and safeguard the cultural heritage identities connected to their particular landscapes.

Africans and protected areas: North–South perspectives

By Lesego S. Stone  &  Gyan P. Nyaupane
The paper critically explores why most black Africans rarely visit  protected areas. More specifically, the study examines non- Western tourists’ perceptions of nature and nature-based tourism in comparison to Western tourists, using Botswana as a case study. The differences in perceptions are explored by adopting an interpretive paradigm to collect and analyze the data and using the North–South conceptualization of nature and tourism. Results indicate that for Western tourists visiting Botswana, nature symbolizes recreation, rejuvenation, and an opportunity “to get away from it all,” whereas for Batswana, it is perceived as a part of everyday life, not an exclusive leisure space. Furthermore, Batswana’s conceptualization, relation to nature, and historical, cultural, and political backgrounds help explain their non-participation in nature-based tourism.
