Khusvegi English & Nomadic Culture Camp is a community-led tourism initiative that aims to foster an authentic human connection and transformational slow travel experience that mutually benefits tourists and the local community. It is a four-week English teaching and cultural immersion program that offers travelers a chance to immerse themselves in the nomadic culture and eagle hunting traditions by becoming a part of the Kazakh nomadic community of Sagsai in Western Mongolia. The eagle hunters invite you to BE A NOMAD. CELEBRATE LIFE.
Travelers will teach English to young Kazakh nomads while they discover and learn about the nomadic lifestyle first-hand as guests of the local community. For the local community, English learning will open doors for the young generation of nomads to become tour guides, ambassadors and storytellers on behalf of their community as they connect and share their stories, culture and traditions directly with tourists, thereby creating “language equity” in the long run. The program runs every summer from mid-June to mid-July. Khusvegi English & Nomadic Culture Camp is the AWARD WINNER for the Launch Track category at the 2021 Social Entrepreneurship in Tourism Competition hosted by TUI Care Foundation, UNWTO, Sina, Travel Massive, Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development, and ITB Berlin.
