Abstract and Keywords

Management of sub-Saharan protected areas is at its peak, with most countries having signed up to international conventions aimed at protecting the natural environment and collectively managing political threats that are likely to emanate from other states’ interest to harness cross-border environmental resources. These conservation efforts however are at a broader perspective that does not cater for the nuances at varying scales of environmental resources conservation and management. This article looks at the micro scale of resources management and assesses conservation of landscape at a protected world heritage area to illustrate an existing gap that needs to be addressed by accounting for each and every category of resources found in any protected landscape. To illustrate this phenomenon this article discusses insights from two protected areas of world heritage status in southern Africa: Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Park World Heritage site in Tanzania and Okavango Delta World Heritage site in Botswana.

Keywords: suffocated heritage, protected areas, sub-Saharan Africa, world heritage processing, Okavango Delta Botswana, Ngorongoro Crater Tanzania
