The Gondwana Card - Gondwana Collection

The Gondwana Card

With Gondwana it is affordable to travel Namibia - even for holidaymakers from southern Africa. Special discounts are available to Namibian and SADC citizens with a Gondwana Card.

Average income in Namibia and the SADC countries is significantly lower than in Europe or North America. With the Gondwana Card we want to enable more people from Namibia and the region at large to travel the country - in order to increase awareness within society of the value of nature and its gentle utilisation for tourism.
