The hunt for golden Easter eggs is on at Cymot and Gondwana - Namibia Safari and Lodges - Gondwana Collection

COVID-19. Status quo in Namibia.

It is with regret that Gondwana Collection Namibia has learnt that the COVID-19 virus has reached Namibia. On 14 March 2020, President Hage Geingob confirmed the first two cases. On 17 March, the President declared a state of emergency.

On 24 March 2020, the additional measures in response to the COVID-19 outbreak have been announced. They include a lockdown of the Khomas and Erongo regions from 27 March until 16 April 2020. For regulations and guidelines please click here. Namibia has 16 confirmed COVID-19 cases thus far (as of 5 April 2020).

Gondwana is fully aware of the current situation and continues to monitor the spread of the virus and the resulting changes to our industry. In view of the state of emergency and the additional measures ordered by the government, employees at Gondwana House in Windhoek will be working from home. Due to international and regional travel restrictions Gondwana has reduced its operations at the lodges as far as possible. Most employees have been sent home, at full pay. 

The Ministry of Health has made availability for a toll-free phone number within Namibia for queries with regards to COVID-19. The toll-free number is 800-100-100 or alternatively 911.

Hi - I have been surfing both websites Gondwana & Cymot - but seems to me the 4 golden Easter eggs were stolen even before they appeared on the websites. I have given up my surfing today - I would have loved to find them golden eggs - but no success - I enjoy the Gondwana Website - keep well - kind regards Thelma Meng Swakopmund
