N/a’an ku sê is starting yet another innovative initiative project to support their conservation initiatives and their work with the San.

According to Dr Rudie van Vuuren, Managing Director of N/a’an ku sê the N/a’an ku sê Ancient San Skills Academy is the first project of its kind on the new Omaanda Ombidi Reserve that N/a’an ku sê is part of.

N/a’an ku sê in conjunction with the Nyae Nyae Development Foundation and the Nyae Nyae Conservancy hopes that the Academy will function as a reciprocal training facility. The N/a’an ku sê Foundation will be raising funds in future to make scholarships available to San people who are interested in hospitality training opportunities at N/a’an ku sê. Rhona Strauss of N/a’an ku sê’s Taste Academy will be supervising these scholarships.

“On the flip side of the coin”¸ says Marlice van Vuuren, Director and Founder of N/a’an ku sê “we hope that the visiting groups from the Nyae Nyae will be able to bring across their rich cultural heritage to the San living on N/a’an ku sê”

“The Academy will also financially support our conservation efforts on the Omaanda Ombidi Reserve,” says van Vuuren.

The Omaanda Ombidi Reserve is currently a work in progress and will be opening in March 2014, it is a joint venture between N/a’an ku sê, Ondekaremba Guest Farm and the Rust family as well as Mr Frederik Voigts of the farm Voigtskirch.
