AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY IN NAMIBIA
At the beginning of the 1990s the land bordering the Fish River Canyon in southern Namibia was overgrazed and barren. Ecotourism seemed to be the only sustainable form of land use with the potential to balance the scales and restore the wildlife and vegetation
There is plenty of sunshine in Namibia, so we have equipped many of our lodges with solar panels.
A lot of effort goes into minimising non-recyclable materials at our lodges and implementing sustainable measures to ensure proper waste management.
Our latest lodges, The Desert Grace in the Namib Desert and Etosha King Nehale close to the Etosha National Park in northern Namibia were built using a unique environmentally-friendly construction method.
In 2017 the Gondwana Training Academy opened its doors.The hospitality training and leadership development programme aims to provide service excellence, thereby promoting Namibia as a top African tourist destination.
Guests at our lodges always marvel at the appetising buffets with large selections of fresh salads, dairy and meat products.
Visiting researchers to the Gondwana Canyon Park along with the park management were recently treated to a very rare and wonderful sighting of the shy black-footed cat in the Gondwana Canyon Park.
