CONSERVANCY-OWNED SAFARI COMPANY PAYS CASH DIVIDEND TO DROUGHT STRICKEN HIMBA HOUSEHOLDS – LINKING WILDLIFE CONSERVATION AND TOURISM TO BENEFITS.


An elder, one of about 2 000 Himba shareholders of Conservancy Safaris, with his family’s cash dividend in early January. Conservancy Safaris Namibia, owned by five north-western conservancies, paid N$35 000 in cash dividends to 41 households in Sanitatas Conservancy; 10 more households in that conservancy stand to benefit. A cash payment to members of the other four owner conservancies will also done in the next month or two.


Although some early rains have fallen, Himba families have lost all or most of their cattle to starvation as a result of the past three years of extreme drought – the worst since the early 1980s -and some people face real hunger.  More than 100 000 cattle have died of starvation so far.

This small amount of help coming from Conservancy Safaris and its clients at this critical juncture makes a strong link between benefits and community-based wildlife conservation, according to one of CSN’s trustees, Dr Margaret Jacobsohn.
