Passing the baton - Gondwana welcomes new Managing Director

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.

Around the world in a vintage car

16. November 2016, inke - Tourism

If you come across a vintage car on the streets of Namibia, with an elderly lady at the wheel, you can expect a special rendezvous. In her Hudson Model Great Eight Coach (built in 1930), the Berlin-based Heidi Hetzer is following the tracks of the early world traveller Clärenore Stinnes. In 1927, a male-dominated era, this strong woman travelled to a vast 23 countries. Over the past two years, Heidi has driven through Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, the USA and South America, in her “Hudo”. And now she is travelling through Namibia.
