Indaba - Quo Vadis 5-7 Oct 2012
An Indaba with the theme; 'Quo Vadis? How can we stimulate new interest in the hiking industry and in the process grow Tourism in Southern Africa?', will be hosted by the Hiking Organisation of Southern Africa (HOSA) at Rietvlei Nature Reserve from 5 to 7 October 2012.

Of special significance for the Indaba is that HOSA aims to build strong partnerships between role players within the hiking fraternity and wishes to set up a communication forum in order to provide support for those involved relating to trail building and maintenance thereof, hikers' attitudes and preferences, pricing and marketing for both the local and international hiking industry. Furthermore, stakeholders need to be made aware of the important role the hiking sector plays as part of the tourism industry and that the transformation of the hiking industry has taken big steps forward to include non-traditional hikers in a meaningful way.

Who should attend? All owners and managers of hiking trails private and corporate, hikers - individuals and club members, booking agents, equipment providers, trail builders/auditors, tour operators and all other interested and affected parties.

2012 Fish River Clean Up - 26 September 2012
"This years clean up took place from the 24th to the 28th of August. Ten energetic participants from the stakeholder groups, as well as 25 school children under the auspices of the Hiking Organisation of Southern Africa, took part in the event.

Even the normally inaccessible areas of the Fish River Canyon were covered during the 2012 campaign. To ease matters a bit, Namibia Breweries kindly sponsored T-shirts, drinks and water bottles.

The total amount of waste collected was in the region of 55 kg, all of which was carried out by hand for 90 km to the Ai/Ais Resort, from where it carted away by vehicle."
