Abstract

The Namibia Tourism Board determined that 1 of 555 trophy hunting operators in Namibia is previously disadvantaged. Our goal was to make recommendations to the NTB on how previously disadvantaged farmers can enter the industry. This was accomplished through interviews and a survey of existing operators, interviews with interested cattle farmers, and on-site evaluations of 13 potential farms. Conclusions and recommendations included personalized feedback to farmers, an informational pamphlet, and recommendations to the NTB on how to successfully support these farmers.
