Abstract

Geotourism is geology-based and was first defined as the provision of interpretive and service facilities to enable tourists to acquire knowledge and understanding of the geology and geomorphology of a site beyond the level of mere esthetic appreciation (Hose 1995). Inherent in this approach is that geotourism is a vehicle to foster geoconservation and an understanding of geological heritage
