Wildlife Resorts warns of fake booking agents on the prowl

Namibia Wildlife Resorts (NWR) warned its clients against fraudulent activities of people who pose as NWR booking agents.

“It has come to NWR’s attention that there are individuals who are purporting to be NWR booking agents and are luring clients to make their bookings and payments with them to secure their accommodation needs,” Zelna Hengari, NWR’s Managing Director said in a statement released this week.

NWR requests that the clients thus avoid making any bookings with individuals who pretend to work for the company. “We would like to implore our clients to make use of our official booking channels or registered tour operators,” Hengari said.

If clients want to book with NWR directly, they are advised to either call the resort on 061 285 7200 or email us at [email protected] or book online via its official website:
