The Gondwana Collection is building a new lodge in the endless expanse of the Namib. Construction is in full swing. “The lodge will reflect the solitude, space and mesmerizing colours of the Namib Desert,” says Alain Noirfalise, Gondwana’s Director of Operations. “It will offer an upmarket alternative to the Namib Desert Lodge, 10km away. The name: The Desert Grace.”

When one sees the local Rundu inhabitants wading through the Okavango on foot, it is clear: Unfortunately, boat trips for guests at Hakusembe River Lodge have been stopped temporarily. This is due to the low water levels in the river. The Chobe River might also be affected and with it the activities at the Chobe River Camp.
