Example text

The philosophy of &Beyond has been expressed (Carlisle, 2007) as ‘care of the land, care of the wildlife, care of the people’. The metaphor of the three‑legged cooking pot has been used to illustrate the argument that each of these three components is equally critical to the overall success of the enterprise. Similar metaphors have also been adopted by a number of other African conservation tourism operators. In practice, active management of land and vegetation, wildlife populations and interactions, and good relations with staff and neighbouring communities are indeed equally critical core components of business operations for companies such as &Beyond.

In the meantime, &Beyond has already achieved a great deal for conservation. It has protected significant areas of wildlife habitat in the form of private and community reserves funded by tourism. Within some of these areas, it has successfully protected significant populations of endangered species, such as the great blue crane at Kwandwe. It has developed, demonstrated and shared techniques for successful capture, translocation and release of individual animals of many different species. This is a critical component of current conservation management practices, so as to be able to restock rehabilitated areas and in some cases so as to actively maintain genetic diversity in isolated subpopulations.

It lies at the northwestern border of South Africa, adjacent to Botswana, and is bisected by the Mafikeng– Gaborone Road. Its western boundary is formed by the Marico River. Derelict farm buildings, old fences and weeds were removed; other buildings were renovated for parks staff; a 157 km electrified perimeter fence was installed to enclose a 600 km2 area of the reserve; and 8000 individual animals, from 28 wildlife species, were translocated and released in the reserve through a programme known as Operation Phoenix.
