DTS Volleyball for All – Suitable for the Guinness Book of World Records?

30. January 2017, inke - Sport

Pass, set, attack… For more than three decades the first Saturday in February has been a set date in Windhoek. On this day thousands of volleyball players will go to the annual ‘Volleyball for All’ tournament hosted by the ‘Deutscher Turn- und Sportverein’ DTS. A small sports club hosting a great sporting event. And if you ask me, an ideal addition to the Guinness Book of World Records.

Bartholomeu Dias - Watery grave at the Cape of Storm

27. January 2017, inke - Discover Namibia

Defying gale-force winds and the spray of the thundering surf, the stone cross stands firmly on a rocky promontory that juts some 50 metres into the Atlantic Ocean southwest of Lüderitz. It is a monument to Bartholomeu Dias, the Portuguese seafarer who was the first European to sail around the southern tip of Africa and thereby pioneered the way to opening up the sea route to India.

18. January 2017, inke - Gondwana Collection, Tourism

Gys Joubert started as Gondwana’s new Managing Director on 16 January. The forty year old lawyer knew exactly what he was getting himself into, as he has served on the group’s Board of Directors for the past year. “As I got to know the company better, I fell head over heels in love with it and its potential. My primary focus will be on growth, rather than change.” He is also sure of the support he will receive from his predecessor. Manni Goldbeck will stay on with the Gondwana Collection as the Director of Brand and Marketing.

Petition against illegal fishing stirring big waves

16. January 2017, inke - Environment, Gondwana Collection

Illegal fishing in Namibia is taking its final toll. Commercialization and exportation has placed immense pressure on the eco- and river systems, the local communities and tourism. This is stated through a video that was released on Friday morning (13/01) as part of an enlightenment campaign. Gondwana Collection Namibia is in full support of this initiative.

The Jetty - Restaurant instead of Harbour Cranes

06. January 2017, inke - Discover Namibia

Standing on the jetty and marvelling at the sunset is an experience that is as much a part of a holiday in Swakopmund as salt belongs in the ocean. It is surprising then to find that both of these attractions are simply the result of a few quirks of history. If the bay of today’s Walvis Bay, 30 km further south, had not already been in British hands at the end of the 19th century and had Imperial Germany not declared the southwestern part of Africa a protectorate and done its utmost to build a harbour for the country, things might have been very different.
