Our project created a plan to employ Topnaar community members in tourism activities at the Namib Sand Sea World Heritage Site. Our team determined that the creation of a Topnaar community tourism association would improve communication between the community and tour operators, thus facilitating Topnaar employment. The Topnaar are interested in developing community-based tourism activities and we identified a number of cultural and ecological attractions that appeal to both the Topnaar and tour operators. The village of Utuseb and the Lauberville campsite are two potential hubs for these tourism activities. The proposed tourism association will facilitate joint tourism efforts between tour operators and the Topnaar to ensure benefits to the entire community.
