Résumé
Perceived perception of community participation in the process of planning for tourism development are examined in the Amboseli region, Kajiado District, Kenya using S. Arnstein (1969) Ladder of citizen participation as a model. Analysis shows that both the government and the local people perceive and define citizen participation differently. Although a partnership programme between each party is currently in place, evidence demonstrates that the level of citizen participation is still at the manipulation stage. A conceptual model has been suggested as a tool to determine a desired level of citizen participation and strategies to successfully achieve that level. By determining and achieving such an optimal level, planning for tourism development in a community setting may be sustained.
