10 out of 10! The Desert Whisper experience is exceptional! This is the opinion of guests who have booked this luxury accommodation in the Namib Desert over the past three years via the booking portal Booking.com.
And there is more. Altogether 33 Gondwana properties, including the self-catering option Camping2Go and Campsites, have received traveller ratings of 8 points and more and were awarded the Booking.com Traveller Review Awards 2023.
Booking.com acknowledges the winners with the following words: “We’re thrilled to celebrate the incredible hospitality of our partners around the world. To all of this year's winning partners - congratulations. This award is a symbol of all the times you went above and beyond to create special experiences and lasting memories for travellers.”
While tourism is on the rise again in most parts of the world, the Booking.com Traveller Review Awards honour hospitality businesses from 220 countries for providing consistently excellent services over the course of the year, based on a pool of over 240 million verified customer reviews on Booking.com for more than 1.3 million accommodation partners (globalnews.booking.com).
Guests rate the overall experience at a property by selecting a score from 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest. The rating given with the award shows the average score of the past 3 years.
