Resettlement and Regeneration: The Pafuri Camp Joint-venture Lodge, Kruger National Park, South Africa

Anna Spenceley, STAND Ltd

Summary

This case describes how the Makuleke community reclaimed formal ownership over their land in the Kruger National Park through a land restitution process in South Africa. On the basis that the land could only be used for conservation, the Makuleke formed agreements with private operators to build and operate joint-venture tourism lodges. These generated income, employment and empowered people that had previously been forcibly removed from land by the state.
