After my MA degrees in Cultural Anthropology and Environmental Studies (both Utrecht University), I lived at the resettlement farm Tsintsabis, Namibia. From 2002 to 2007 I have supported the local community of Tsintsabis, which then still mostly consisted of former hunter-gatherers the Hai//om Bushmen (San), to build up Treesleeper Camp. Treesleeper is a community-based ecotourism camp, for which the idea had started during a 6-month fieldwork period for my MA research in anthropology in 1999.
