A Story from the Heart – Gondwana Collection Namibia

08. novembre 2019, inke - Gondwana Collection

The story of Gondwana Collection Namibia began where all things of value begin: with a heart and a dream. The company had humble beginnings - a handful of like-minded people who envisioned a conservation area in the Fish River Canyon surrounds. The year was 1996, six years after Namibian independence when hope floated effervescently in the air and the first international visitors started to enter the country to see what was on offer in the semi-arid reaches of southern Africa.

11. octobre 2019, inke - Tourism, Gondwana Collection

The journey from Gondwana’s Delight hotel in Swakop up the famed Skeleton Coast to Palmwag and then northwards to Omarunga-Epupa Falls Camp provided a wealth of spectacular landscapes and fascinating stops, but - importantly - it also provided the opportunity to meet some of Namibia’s beautiful and colourful people. Sometimes, because of a lack of a common language, we had to use gestures and hand signals, but we still managed to communicate.

On the road again - Into Kaokoland

27. septembre 2019, inke - Tourism, Gondwana Collection

Travelling via the Skeleton Coast from Swakopmund to Palmwag and Epupa Falls elicits a thrill of excitement. It ticks all the boxes for the adventurous at heart and adds a couple more. Heading on the salt and gravel roads to the more remote fence-free reaches of Namibia, home to desert elephant, rhino and lion, and further north to the semi-nomadic Himba people, must rate as one of the most exhilarating adventures in the country.
