dc.description.abstract The study attempted to examine the effect of the development of outdoor recreation on people's agricultural activities in KwaNgwanase and the assessment of the potentiality of the area for outdoor recreation. The investigation of the use of outdoor recreation resources formed an integral part of the study, A clustered random sampling procedure was used which yielded 50 respondents who lived near the outdoor recreation resources. The questionnaire method was used for data collection. The second sample consisted of the authorities in the outdoor recreation resources. It was found that the community members used the recreation resources for the performance of daily living activities but not for recreation purpose. It was also found that the development of outdoor recreation caused ill-feelings to the conmunity members. The study revealed that that the study area has potential for outdoor recreation.The study highlights that: while productive farming areas in South Africa endowed with good agricultural soils can be developed easily for recreation purpose, marginal areas must be seen from a different perspective. More attention needs to be taken in zoning land-use units so that a balance can exist between the basic human activities. en_US
