Gondwana turn 20 at Tourism Expo
The Gondwana Collection of lodges, camps and hotels, is turning 20 this year. The birthday celebrations are scheduled to coincide with the Tourism Expo from 18 to 21 May at the showgrounds in Windhoek.
“This year the Gondwana Collection is celebrating 20 years at the Namibian Tourism Expo and heartily invites anyone who would like to celebrate with us” the group said in a statement this week.
“Join us from 18 to 21 May at the Gondwana Shebeen. Participate in our Sundowner Competition and stand a chance to win your share of 101 nights at any Gondwana Lodge.”
Live music is on the menu every evening. This year Gondwana welcomes Fancy Galada, an internationally known singer from Cape Town who has performed with various groups such as Abamanyani, Heshoo Beshoo and the world renowned percussion ensemble, Amampondo. The already familiar Etosha Boys and Professors will also take the stage.
The Gondwana Hall’s kitchen will once again be serving the popular Gondwana bratwurst, kaesegriller and schnitzel. And the kiosk outside will offer coffee, snacks and slush puppies. There will also be a cash-bar available in the Gondwana Hall.
The Gondwana Collection is in line for the Responsible Tourism Award 2016, with Etosha Safari Camp one of the three finalists. The remaining finalists have undergone further assessment against criteria that combine those of the existing Eco Awards and additional criteria that make the assessment compliant with International Certification Standards. The overall winner will be announced on 19 May 2016 at the Nedbank Unity Village at 16:00.
