Abstract [en]

Nomadic tourism is one of the important potentials of ecotourism in Iran. Since, it is a completely new area in ecotourism of Iran, it is necessary to have a firm foundation for its planning to achieve the successful sustainable development based on its capabilities. Nomadic tourism is a so sensitive area which for its sustainable development there is a need to a planning which considers different aspects affecting it. Since the tribal nomadic women have a key role in nomadic tribal lifestyle, the tribal nomadic women are the key factors who should be considered in nomadic tourism development planning. There are a lot of nomadic tribes in territories of Fars province: then Fars has a high potential of nomadic tourism. In this research, a group of nomadic women of the “Khamseh Tribes”, is studied. The region of the study is “Bavanat” in Fars province. The reason for the selection of this “tribes” in this region is that this group has been more easily available for study than the other groups. Also this group has been the only group of nomads in Fars province which during less than 3 years, more than 4500 tourists has visited them. This research is a kind of qualitative descriptive researches which follows the qualitative methods for gathering data and information through the field works. The field work is consisted of interview, direct observation, interview through the focus group, taking films and photos, etc. Research concludes that the Khamseh tribal women have great contribution to ecotourism in Bavanat even if their activities have been started since 3 years ago. Economic impacts are still remained to be evaluated in years to come (it is soon to be commented): but a few cultural and environmental impacts of ecotourism development have been considered and analyzed in the research. It seems that careful policies and planning must be considered for the future development of ecotourism in Bavanat as well as Fars province.
