Trump blunder puts Namibia on the map

23. January 2018, inke - Tourism, Gondwana Collection

The Gondwana Collection Namibia is gobsmacked by how many people have viewed its cheeky video clip on ‘shithole’ Namibia. In just ten days it has reached more than 670 million people all over the world – a prime example for the power of the internet and social media! And one of the most successful destination marketing campaigns for Namibia since independence in 1990.

Testing the Duster in the Desert

It stands there, silver-coloured, shimmering in the sunlight, a bit broad with a square rear end and that nice “Namibia2Go” logo on its doors. The car’s interior has lots of space for children, dogs and shopping bags, a nice city car. And on top of that it’s all-wheel drive? That is what the offer says. I am tasked to test the Duster in the Kalahari Desert.

Riding through the desert landscape, with nothing but your bicycle and headlamp to guide you through the dry, harsh terrain. Darkness stretches its daunting fingers into every direction, making you wonder what is hiding in the shadows… Intimidating, isn’t it? The Desert Dash, while exhilarating, challenging and absolutely thrilling, is most definitely not for the feint hearted.

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.”

Selected boat trips temporarily suspended from September to December

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.
