"By establishing a model for future conservation where humans and wildlife exist in harmony, we create the foundation for sustainable future eco-tourism as a means of livelihood for future generations of our communities". "The Dinokeng Game Reserve (DGR) presents a rare opportunity to develop a model for future conservation. The DGR is unique in the sense that we are the only residential Big Five Game Reserve worldwide located within the boundaries of a metro city, just half an hour from the city centre. We are pioneering a model where the Big Five roam freely and live in harmony with resident landowners." " Tourism is by its nature the most people-intensive of all industry sectors. Nurturing of responsible tourism is the best means of creating sustainable jobs"  excerpt from A Decade of Dust and Dreams section by Ludger Helm.
