Utopia Trailblazers

From Husbandry to Hospitality

Düsternbrook Safari Guest Farm

A family farm for generations, Düsternbrook long ago shifted from cattle farming to tourism. They now collaborate with neighbouring farmers on tourism projects and have launched a multi-day hiking trail across their properties in the Windhoek Green Belt.

By diversifying their income generating opportunities, these farmers will be able to reduce their dependence on cattle farming, which will make them more resilient to seasons of ever-diminishing rainfall. They're adapting to climate change by working together towards a common goal.

Johann is one of the farmers involved; find out why he thinks it is a success...

Thank you for sharing your story... Johann Vaatz
