Conduct a feasibility study and prepare an implementation plan for the Gamkaskloof Donkey Route in Calitzdorp District in the Western Cape. The route starts in Groenfontein and crosses Swartberg Mountain in the Little Karoo (a proclaimed World Heritage Site) to “The Hell” in Gamkaskloof. This project will contribute to making the World Heritage Site accessible to the public, through partnerships, by reinstating cultural-historical practices and creating employment for local communities, while making private conservation land a financial viable entity.

Strategic Direction: 2 Promote innovative private sector and community involvement in conservation in landscapes surrounding  biodiversity corridors
