Here the hearts of culture-interested guests will beat faster to a few bars.
This is the place for visitors who are interested in the culture of the San. San, resident of that part of the Kalahari, demonstrate traditional dance shows, explain therapeutic effects of different plants, women show jewelry making and the men the art of fire. Thanks to these tourism activities culture and tradition are maintained.
But not only offers this, located only 24 km outside of Ghanzi, community-based tourism project jobs and an important source of income for the in this area natives, but at the same time is the overwhelming 7500 hectares surrounding a refuge for many game species in form of a private game reserve.
For these unremitting efforts BirdsConTour rewards the Dqae Qare San Lodge with a three penguin rated Welfare, Conservation and Tourism Support 2014 Award.
