This volume provides an accessible overview of cultural tourism in southern Africa. It examines the utilisation of culture in southern African tourism and the related impacts, possibilities and challenges from deep and wide-ranging perspectives. The chapters use case studies to showcase some of the cultural tourism which occurs in the region and link to concepts such as authenticity, commodification, the tourist gaze and ‘Otherness', heritage, sustainability and sustainable livelihoods. The authors scrutinise both positive and negative impacts of cultural tourism throughout the book and explore issues including the definition of community, ethical considerations, empowerment, gender, participation and inequality. The book will be a useful resource for students and researchers of tourism, geography, anthropology and cultural studies.

This book is a comprehensive, critically informed overview of cultural tourism in Southern Africa.

(Li Yang, Western Michigan University, USA)

This book offers a carefully composed variety of chapters. Readers are invited to partake in educational reflections on personal, collective and institutional problem formations, aspired solutions and modes of local governance for development. Guided by the paradigm of sustainability, and linked to ideas of regional knowledge-economies and their actor-networks in the glocal tourism industry, this recommendable work is a must-read.

(Fritz Becker, University of Namibia, Namibia)

This fascinating book covers a wide range of topical and pertinent issues in cultural tourism studies from a previously under-researched region of the world. The authors provide an intelligent and sensitive analysis of the ways in which cultural and community-based tourism are being developed, managed and promoted with a focus on both ethics and sustainability.

(Melanie Kay Smith, Budapest Metropolitan University of Applied Sciences, Hungary)
