Présentation
Approximately 150 land claims have been lodged within protected areas in South Africa, of which 21 are in the Kwa-Zulu Natal province (Parliamentary Monitoring Group 2013 : 2). The success of these protected areas depends on the appropriate settlement of these claims. Co-management is the only strategy used to settle land claims in Protected Areas in South Africa (Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism 2007 : 4). The co-management framework suggests that a protected area must be managed in such a way that it provides a sustainable flow of resources to meet the needs of claimants, while ensuring that conservation for nature-based tourism opportunities is practiced (De Koning 2009 : 6). However, the model seems to pose challenges, as it requires managers to address the needs of claimant communities, while still conserving the country’s biodiversity (Walker 2010 : 1476). The Tala Game Reserve claim comprises 211 households that have been awarded rights to the land (National Empowerment Fund 2013 : 147). According to the co-management model, the 2092-ha reserve must provide tangible economic benefits to these households without compromising its primary mandate of conserving the country’s biodiversity
