TUCSIN (The University Centre for Studies in Namibia) bought Tsumkwe Lodge in 2014 from the Namibia Country Lodges Group. The TUCSIN TSUMKWE Hospitality and Training Centre is now a multi-functional centre promoting inter alia, education and training. At the same time it operates as any other lodge in Namibia catering for local and international visitors to the area.

TUCSIN became involved because this was seen as an opportunity for offering education and training to the marginalized San community who can no longer survive exclusively by hunting and gathering. The need to integrate community members and in particular the Ju/’hoan San Bushmen, who live in the Nyae Nyae Conservancy, is of cardinal importance. It requires a well-informed approach with respect for the precious - but rare - value systems of traditional hunter-gatherer societies. TUCSIN considers the lodge as an opportunity for involving the marginalised San community who live in the area. A hands-on approach to work should lead to training, study and eventual employment.

Accommodation complemented by personal hosting and cultural excursions to Ju/’hoansi villages form part of the day to day function of this Hospitality and Training facility. With its close proximity to the Nyae Nyae Pans and Khaudom National Park, Tsumkwe is still a wilderness paradise, off the beaten track!
