Friday, December 1 2017| NEW ERA SDVERT 15 THE TRAVEL UPDATE NOVEMBER 2017 VOL. 2, NO. 17 We are a proudly Namibian hospitality and service company. We manage resorts and camps within our National Parks across our beautiful country on behalf of the Namibian Government. We have professional, knowledgeable and customer-driven staff who are dedicated to providing you with a relaxing, comfortable, memorable and a liberating Namibian experience. We look forward to hosting you on your next visit. TORRA BAY CAMP Starting from as little as N$ 230 Key activity: Fishing EXCITING AND UNIQUE KAZA TOUR PACKAGE LAUNCHED Ourselves in partnership with three of the other four Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation (KAZA TFCA) countries, namely Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe have come up with an exciting route earmarked at promoting tourism within the KAZA area. The conservation area is unique in that it includes the Okavango Delta, which is the world’s largest inland river delta, as well as the famous Victoria Falls. The KAZA TFCA, which spans five southern African countries - including Angola - is also likely to be the largest conservation area in the world. With all of this to offer, we saw an opportunity to put together a unique package that would present all these different offerings, in addition to showcasing our Popa Falls Resort in the Kavango East region. The package is a book once, comprehensive (offerings specified) opportunity for our guests to experience four countries within six days. “Our main aim is to bring unity amongst African countries and promote cross-border domestic tourism while expanding our product offering”, says Mrs Zelna Hengari, our Managing Director. “It was important for us to try out the route before opening it up to the general public. Thus, some of our colleagues undertook a pilot/ introductory tour with some of the ambassadors and high commissioners of the respective countries forming part of the KAZA. We felt that through experiencing the tour themselves the officials would be better placed to promote this unique package in their respective countries”, says Mr Mufaro Njabulo Nesongano, our Corporate Communications and Online Media Manager.

SA College for Tourism Graduates flank NWR's Managing Director, Mrs. Zelna Hengari. DISADVANTAGED WOMEN IN TOURISM EMPOWERED Five young disadvantaged women from the /Ai-/Ais Richtersveld Transfrontier Park (ARTP) recently graduated from the SA College for Tourism (SACT) in Graff Reinet town in South Africa with certificates in hospitality. The women were part of a class of graduates all from the Southern African region. The five young women mainly from vulnerable groups within the ARTP were selected as part of a development programme in Southern Namibia and Northern South Africa, based on the mandate that we received from the two Transfrontier Conservation Area (TFCA) partner countries to develop tourism in the region. The programme aims to empower marginalised women with the necessary skill sets to operate within the hospitality industry. Since tourism contributes significantly to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of Namibia and South Africa, the work that SACT instils goes hand in hand with the philosophy that Dr Anton Rupert believed in when he founded the Peace Parks Foundation together with Nelson Mandela and Prince Bernard of the Netherlands. He believed in conserving crucial landscapes which surpass international boundaries and training people to manage these areas, from a conservation and tourism perspective to stimulating economic growth through ecotourism within these areas. Mrs Zelna Hengari, our Managing Director illustrated this by saying, “as NWR, we embraced this mandate and as a result, have overseen the development of tourism products such as the Desert Knights Mountain Bike Tour Challenge and the Desert Kayak Trails which are all within the ARTP". With regards to the graduates, she said that "we aim to employ them to provide a platform where they can showcase their newly acquired skills”.
