Issue 3 (November 2008) 1 New camp at Etosha’s Andersson’s Gate
Safari & Adventure Co has opened its first Namibian camp. It is called Andersson’s Camp and is situated less than five kilometres from Andersson’s Gate to Etosha. It has its own popular waterhole and looks out onto a low range of hills named the Ondundozonanadana Range.


In keeping with Safari & Adventure Co’s mandate, care has been taken at this camp to make it as environmentally friendly as possible, using a variety of methods to reduce the footprint on the area.

This eco-sensitive lodge provides a safe and down-to-earth experience for small groups, families and independent travellers to Etosha. Safari & Adventure Co is an independent division operating within the Wilderness Safaris Group.

2 Desert Rhino Camp
Desert Rhino Camp in the Palmwag Concession reopened in June following a major upgrade. The Wilderness Safaris’ classic-style camp now has more comfortable safari-era tents. The camp continues to offer desert rhino tracking in partnership with the Save the Rhino Trust.

3 New rooms at Okonjima
The home of the AfriCat Foundation, Okonjima, has added a luxurious honeymoon suite to its bush camp. The bush camp is situated on the edge of a wilderness area and enjoys complete privacy. Okonjima has also recently opened ten new rooms in its main camp, which used to be a guest farm. These rooms offer affordable comfort with individual verandahs from where you can look out onto the reserve. Okonjima is 50 kilometres south of Otjiwarongo in North Central Namibia.
4 Olive grove opulence
The Olive Grove Guesthouse has opened a garden suite which it claims is the most stylish room in Windhoek. It is perfect for couples wanting a romantic and luxurious start or end to their holiday. It has a private garden, double queen beds and an infinity pool which allows guests to enjoy tranquil sunsets with views over a private olive grove and the mountains of Windhoek. Guests can dine al fresco on their private deck or inside the suite next to an open fire. There is a private computer for internet access and an iPod docking station.

5 Refurbishment for Protea Namibia
The United Africa Group (UAG), which held the majority shares in Protea Hotels Namibia, has bought shares from Protea Hotels South Africa to turn the company into a one hundred per cent Namibian-owned venture.

Haddis Tilahun, Managing Director of UAG, said that this latest business venture was another UAG strategy to enhance Namibia’s status as a tourism hub and help showcase the excellent hospitality industry in the country.

Currently Protea Hotels Namibia owns Hotel Fürstenhof, Pelican Bay Hotel, Sea-View Hotel Zum Sperrgebiet, Pandu Ondangwa Lodge, Zambezi Lodge, African Pride Burning Shore, and the latest addition to the portfolio, the Thüringerhof. Three of these top hotels have received multi-million dollar refurbishments which are nearing completion and will enhance their looks, comfort and service value.
