Quite often the chance to travel is dismissed when one considers the costs associated with it.
When an individual considers visiting a new place, the first question that comes to mind is – how expensive is it going to be?
This is one of the reasons why State-owned hospitality and tourism company, Namibia Wildlife Resorts (NWR), has continuously come up with incentives to encourage domestic travel and to make it as affordable as possible.
“As a way of ensuring that every citizen has an opportunity to visit us during major holidays, we tend to come up with specials.
“For instance, this past festive season, we reduced our lodging rates by 60% which meant that a couple that booked a bush chalet at Gross Barmen only paid N$ 880 per night inclusive of breakfast,” says Mufaro Njabulo Nesongano, NWR Corporate Communications and Online Media Manager.
Taking advantage of the discount, Popular Touch FM radio presenter, Queen Avula, was able to take a break with her partner at Gross Barmen during the festive season.
“Ever since I was young, I have always been adventurous and enjoyed travelling. I believe that travelling enhances one’s tolerance for uncertainty, and it definitely creates memories for a lifetime. Being quite flexible and expressive, I made friends easily, so in the past I would even travel alone and make friends where I land,” said Avula.
“Now that I have a partner who enjoys leisure, travelling has become even much more fun, however, a bit costly. That is why when I heard about the special that NWR was offering during the festive season I was very excited about it. In addition to that, I also acquired a NamLeisure Plus card for couples in order to benefit from the discounts offered on meals. Since the card is renewable after a year, I intend to make use of it in order to explore Namibia further.”
