The world’s largest online travel site TripAdvisor and Eco Awards Namibia acknowledged Gondwana’s continuous investments into service excellence, sustainability and nature conservation. 

After earning Certificates of Excellence for the past five consecutive years, Canyon Village was now inducted into the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame. The lodge honours the spirit of the south and of the Nama people, and is situated close to the Fish River Canyon. Canyon Village won over the hearts of guests with its 42 neat rooms, its warm hospitality and attentive service. 

In the far north-east of the country more than a thousand kilometres away lies another excellent Gondwana establishment in the lush green water world of the Zambezi Region. In recognition of its appeal the Namushasha River Lodge has also received a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. The certificate is awarded when an accommodation establishment is given excellent marks within one year by a sufficient number of guests on the TripAdvisor pages, scoring at least 4 out of 5 points for the general assessment criteria.  

TripAdvisor awarded Namushasha River Lodge with a Certificate of Excellence.

Furthermore, Gondwana’s efforts to save water and electricity, to protect nature as well as for eco-friendly waste disposal and staff development were acknowledged with the highest eco quality seal in Namibia. 

“BIG Congratulations to Damara Mopane Lodge for obtaining its first 5 Eco Award Flower rating,” Gondwana’s environmental officer Quintin Hartung said. “Damara Mopane Lodge was re-assessed in May 2018 after it received a 4 flower rating in 2014. The 5 flower rating is a testament to good lodge management and ongoing improvement of our environmental management at the Lodge.” 

Similar to the grading with stars for accommodation establishments, Eco Awards Namibia awards up to five desert flowers under the eco seal of quality.
