It compares indigenous ecotourism in developed and developing countries and covers cultural ecotours, ecolodges and bungalows, hunting and fishing tours, cultural attractions and other nature-based facilities or services. The book reviews indigenous ecotourism as a special type of nature-based tourism and examines the conservation and community benefits of indigenous-owned and operated ecotourism businesses. It concludes by analysing prospects for sustainable development of indigenous ecotourism and the growing links between biodiversity conservation, ecotourism and indigenous rights.
