Dissertation on cultural authenticity - i need your help again guys! by VICKIGALL1 on 10 February 2008 8:23pm
 
Hi everyone! Ok so im nearly finished my last year at uni and i need to get me dissertation completed and printed by April 1st!! Its took lots of turns but is now coming together. I am including a a case study on Namibia. I have chosen this country as tourism has grown rapidly just since independence from south africa in 1990. It was once a very sparse area and now it is becoming more modernised. It will be based on the culture there so if anyone has any info on the country, culture, tourism and how tourism is affecting the culture there it would be a huge help. Is tourism destroying cultural authenticity in Namibia? Thanx guys hope to hear from you soon

I know nothing about Namibia however, a friend of mine just went on a safari in neighboring Botswana which has many of the same issues. She talked about camping in the bush where the guides and porters were eating corn porridge, while the tourists ate well. Karen told me they offered some of their food to the locals, but they felt strange about taking it.

Many parts of North America are full of Native American areas where the tribe will do some of their things for outsiders as entertainment.

It should be interesting. Good luck with it.

Did you see The Tropic of Capricorn on Sunday night with Simon Reeve? His first port of call was Namibia, I didn't see all of it but what I saw was interesting. It might help a little(if you can get to see that episode, that is).
