Lamprecht will be managing Odzala National Park, which borders Gabon in northwestern Congo. It encompasses 13,546 square kilometers of intact rainforest. "We are basically starting the park from scratch again, and it will be like the early days in the Kruger when my dad started there," Lamprecht wrote The Hunting Report in an e-mail. "I will look into the possibility of getting hunting started again in a buffer zone around the Park."
African Parks Network has a fascinating website (http://african-parks.org) where they spell out their philosophy and business model. They explain their approach as a combination of "world class conservation practice with business expertise." Their emphasis is on achieving independent, financially sustainable parks through tourism, associated private enterprise and payments for eco-system services that drive economic development and alleviate poverty.
