Gobabeb has been hosting students from Dartmouth College for four years during their annual study-abroad programme to southern Africa. Whilst at Gobabeb, these students conduct a range of research projects that include ecological as well as socio-economic topics.
Some of the readers may know the Gobabeb-based cycling team, Team Topnaar. This team has now completed three Desert Dash races as a four-man team. They have done exceptionally well, finishing well below the cut-off time of 24 hours in all the years, and once even making it to the top four.
