What a joy! Jason (l.) and Romano Ramothibe (r.) bought their vouchers after a long night of waiting. Gondwana's managing director Gys Joubert (centre) shares their delight.

The first Black Friday bargain hunters arrived on Thursday at 16:30 in front of Gondwana House in Windhoek. With fold-up chairs and cool boxes they were prepared for a long night, because the vouchers for a super special price were only available at 6 o'clock in the morning. 10,000 vouchers in five price categories, starting at N$199 per person per night at a Gondwana property.

Those who were the first to get to the voucher sale when the gates opened at 6 a.m. had smiling faces. Most bought the allowed 50 vouchers per person. Almost all of them wanted to use the vouchers for family holidays. Among them were Harald Schmidt and his son-in-law Matthew Jackman, who immediately moved on to the booking office and booked a 10-day vacation with the whole family (9 people) at six Gondwana Lodges near Etosha and in the Zambezi Region.

The Namibian Kwaito star EES and some family members were also sitting in the queue on Thursday evening to get vouchers for family and close friends.

Already on Thursday evening the first bargain hunters arrived at Gondwana, among them the Namibian Kwaito star EES.

The Black Friday Sale went smoothly, thanks to the friendly police presence at the gate and the organizational talent of some people waiting in line. On Thursday evening, at dusk, two women walked through the queue and put everyone on a list. They wanted to make sure that the “first come, first serve” principle was adhered to. Those who stayed all night should be the first ones to come to the voucher sale-points in the morning. Some Gondwana staff set up a barbecue and braaid boere-wors. In the morning there was a bit of anxiety with the arrival of new bargain hunters, but it quickly subsided.  

The Black Friday Online Sale was also very popular. In addition to numerous lodge bookings with a 50 percent discount, there were a lot of inquiries that kept Gondwana's booking department in suspense. On Cyber Monday (2.12.) online bookings at half price are possible again. The Namibia2Go car rental is also available at a 25 percent discount. The special prices for rental cars are valid until Cyber Monday.

Bright faces on Harald Schmidt (l.) and his son-in-law Matthew Jackman. The two moved directly from the voucher purchase to Faith Hansen (l.) at the Gondwana booking office.
