DescriptionConservation in many of the African countries differs in terms of approaches but it is generally accepted that no matter what system is adopted all aim at protecting the resources in an optimum condition, as would be practicably possible through application of the most contemporary acceptable methodologies. All aim to balance development that assures acceptable levels of resource impacts while taking into consideration benefit to local communities.
Proactive communities and the private sector are key dimensions to ensure this achievement in the real sense. Presently, conservation aims at enhancing satisfaction of tourists through increasingly diversified activities at a high quality with very minimum negative impact to the resources. The largest challenge, however, is to balance resources utilization with development of different facilities in line with community needs.
