WATERGBERG RESORT Starting from as little as N$ 810 Key activity: Game drives WHY TOURISM IS IMPORTANT TO NAMIBIA It is a known fact that tourism is an important industry in Namibia. It currently contributes significantly towards the Gross Domestic Product, making it a valuable sector within the country. Unlike other segments that have not been spared by the tough economic challenges the country is going through, the tourism industry has witnessed a tremendous boost over the past two years. This tells us of the resilience within the industry and the key role it can play towards the attainment of the Harambee Prosperity Plan (HPP), National Development Plan (NDP5) and the ultimate success of Vision 2030. Even during the weakening of the Namibian dollar to other major currencies the industry has seen a boost in visitors, along with increased revenue, due to the affordability experienced by international tourists travelling to Namibia. However, credit must also be given to the exceptional work that has been done by the Namibia Tourism Board (NTB) in marketing Namibia as a destination of choice, along with Air Namibia, in getting foreign tourists into the country, especially from Namibia’s biggest source market – Germany. It is for this reason that as the Government continues to tighten its belt; it should not reach a point where the country reduces its expenditure within the industry that results in a loss of momentum that has been created over the past few years. What could be of assistance is to continue investing in the sector, not only does this give the country an opportunity to expose itself to the world, but also Namibia benefits from the direct foreign exchange that comes with international tourists. In conclusion, the future looks bright for the industry. What is critical is for each one of us to keep building on what we have, in order to leave a solid foundation for future generations. It would be sad to get to a time when all the beauty we have is destroyed. That is why, we should continue to guard against individuals that want to temper with this. Lastly, the Namibian Government deserves credit for their current and future efforts to safeguard our wild animals and environment. THE EMBODIMENT OF SERVICE TO OTHERS Lahia Tshuuya is the embodiment of service at the Central Reservation Office (CRO) of Namibia Wildlife Resorts (NWR). Having been one of the few individuals to see the birth of NWR from the Ministry of Environment and Tourism to what it is today, one can safely say that she has seen it all and has enjoyed every moment of it when she speaks about her journey at the tourism company. Meme Kadjene, as she is fondly referred to by her peers has been a pillar within the Central Reservations Office having started off as an Assistance Sales Consultant in the Information Division to now being a Senior Sales Consultant within the CRO department. Her current role sees her ensuring that bookings of tour operators are processed efficiently and effectively to avoid guests having challenges when they arrive at any of the resorts. With 18 years under her belt, she still takes pride in seeing a smile on a client’s face even if it means she needs to go beyond the call of duty. A colleague that testifies to this is Anna Onen, our Sales, and Reservations’ Manager who says that “Lahia is dedicated to her work and testimony to this is how she is the first one in the office and at most times the last one to leave. Even if you ask her for assistance while she is busy with something else, she will always make time to help you”. However, Lahia is quick to point out that, “though I enjoy my work, my family is where I derive my greatest happiness from. Whenever I am at home, I make it a point to cook for them since I tend to spend a lot of time at work”.
