Welcome to our 2020 Value Creation Report. This report represents Gondwana Collection Namibia and how we created value in 2020. This has been our most difficult year on record, with the pandemic and lockdown regulations covering our entire peak season (60% of our total revenue). But, as you will read, it was an opportunity to prove our dedication to Namibia’s people, communities and environment.
It is with great pleasure and pride that Gondwana Collection Namibia would like to share our first Value Creation Report with you. Proudly Namibian, Gondwana is a company with soul. The essence of our culture is intangible. To be a brand of unwavering integrity and passion. To have a lasting impact on our planet and the people whose lives we touch. To make our country, our team and all stakeholders proud.
