Windhoek, 21 December 2016 – In what can be described as a major milestone in the life of the biggest and oldest resort within the Etosha National Park, Namibia Wildlife Resorts (NWR) Okaukuejo generated a revenue of N$ 100 million during the financial year, 1 November 2015 to 31 October 2016 which translated to an overall revenue increase of 16% compared to the previous financial year.
This milestone can confidently be credited to the popularity of the resort, which has an annual average occupancy of over 80%. One of its draw cards is the large, floodlit waterhole, which receives exceedingly regular visits from a wide diversity of wildlife. This includes herds of antelopes, family groups of elephant, some black rhinos, as well as the “king of the jungle” himself.
When asked what her thoughts were about this great achievement, Katriena Hoeses, Okaukuejo’s Resort Manager said, “reaching such a milestone cannot be attributed to her team only. The different reservation offices tremendously contributed to this achievement and should be congratulated as well.”
During the certificate handover at the resort, Mrs. Zelna Hengari, NWR’s Managing Director, could not hide her joy at Okaukuejo’s latest achievement. She pointed out that such an achievement would serve as an encouragement to other NWR camps/resorts.
She concluded by saying, “As the year draws to an end, each one of us has a reason to celebrate due to this major milestone. That’s why, as we celebrate, we should plan for the future so that we can work to achieve more.”
Windhoek, 13 December 2016 – Over the past few months, quite a number of tourists have visited some Namibia Wildlife Resorts (NWR) resorts/camps with the intention of undertaking the hiking trails at the respective facilities.
However, the extreme weather conditions that Namibia has been facing pose a great risk to tourists, as many of them are not familiar with the extreme conditions that certain facilities experience at this time of the year. Another major risk has been the underestimation of the impact that the heat might have on them, which in most cases can lead to dehydration, heat exhaustion or heat stroke.
“We are therefore appealing to those who intend to go hiking to seek information from the respective facilities on whether it is advisable for them to undertake their planned hike. This will provide them with the relevant information before embarking on their excursion,” says Mufaro Nesongano, NWR Corporate Communications and Online Media Manager.
NWR’s Vision is to be “a recognized leader in tourism and hospitality services in Namibia”. For more information, please consult our website www.nwr.com.na or liaise with us directly using the details below.
