Green thumbs up for vegetable gardens

26. September 2019, inke - Gondwana Collection

The tiny, fragile shoot of the newly germinated seed pushes its way through weighty red Kalahari sand grains, determined to make it to the light. At the same time its small roots grip into the soil that it now calls home. Against all odds, the little seedling finds enough of what it needs to thrive – water supply, abundant sunlight as well as the right soil temperature and nutrients. Welcome to Gondwana’s Self-Sufficiency Centre (SSC) in the Kalahari, one of Namibia’s two deserts.

A passionate rendezvous in the north – where the Chobe and the Zambezi meet

20. September 2019, inke - Gondwana Collection, Tourism

A passionate rendezvous unfolds in the north of Namibia where the Chobe River and the Zambezi River come face to face. Nature is a flawless date night planner, with dusk setting the lighting scene in splendid hues of red, orange, pink and purple. I would not typically describe myself as a romantic, but I have found the place where romantics can sign up – it’s called Chobe River Camp.

Do you want to avoid stressful last-minute shopping at Christmas?

September under the banner of sustainability

02. September 2019, inke - Gondwana Collection, Tourism

Gigantic forest fires in the Amazon threaten the "green lung of the world"; catastrophic floods and droughts claim human lives...  The ecological equilibrium of our planet is in jeopardy. No wonder that the magic word "sustainability" is suddenly on everyone's lips. It’s time to rethink and find a new approach to life in order to keep our world in balance for future generations. Gondwana Collection Namibia was, however, founded on the basis of sustainability more than 20 years ago.

We are happy to announce that the construction of Etosha King Nehale on the Andoni plains just one kilometre from Etosha’s northern-most King Nehale gate is on track. The lodge is set to open its doors on 1 May 2020, opening up the North for guests. An easy overnight stop after an exciting day of game-viewing in Etosha, the lodge is that much-needed stop on a journey to the northern reaches, providing easy access to the Gondwana lodges in the Kavango, Zambezi and Kunene regions.

Sinking water level affects activities at Chobe River Camp

25. July 2019, inke - Gondwana Collection

Due to the current drought, the water level of the Chobe River is considerably lower than last year. With sandbanks emerging daily activities at Chobe River Camp have to be adjusted accordingly as the safety of guests enjoys highest priority. Until further notice, this Gondwana lodge unfortunately cannot offer boat cruises anymore but would like to invite their guests to join a half-day game drive.
