Here is something you can’t afford to miss at the Namibia Tourism Expo (29 May to 1 June in Windhoek): the stand of the Gondwana Collection Namibia.
It is decorated in the style of a farm and represents the cosy hospitality of the Kalahari Farmhouse with the adjoining Self-Sufficiency Centre.
As in previous years there will be a competition again. This year we are looking for the “Farm Name of the Year”.
The winners will share a fantastic prize: a total of 103 Gondwana nights with breakfast.
The stand is easy to find in the President’s Hall on the gallery and will catch your eye with its progressively colourful farm-look.
The competition is fun and very easy. There are large poster walls with pictures of around 120 farm signs from all over the country at the stand. For a fee of N$10 participants choose the name which they find the most inspiring.
The Farm Name of the Year will be determined in the week after the fair. Every participant is entered into the draw for the prize. For the rules of the competition follow this link to Gondwana‘s website http://bit.ly/nte-competition .
Any visitor to our stand who enters the competition can also participate in an additional Facebook competition right there by having their picture taken dressed up as a scarecrow.
The Kalahari Farmhouse and the adjoining Self-Sufficiency Centre on the outskirts of Stampriet in the fertile Auob Valley serve as the model for Gondwana’s stand at the tourism fair. With altogether 11 rooms the farmhouse is one of the smaller lodges of the Gondwana Group.
Its allure is upmarket hospitality with a rural ambience. The adjoining Self-Sufficiency Centre supplies Gondwana’s accommodation establishments all over the country with fresh vegetables and fruit as well as milk and cheese, cold cuts and meat. It meets up to 70 percent of the lodges’ demand.
Beverages and tasty snacks will make sure that nobody goes hungry. Für das leibliche Wohl wird mit Getränken und leckeren Snacks gesorgt. Biltong lovers will have a field day! Live bands such as Windpomp with traditional “boeremusiek”, Desmond & Pieter Breedt, Jan Willem Beuke and Gondwana’s own musicians from Etosha Safari Camp will provide entertainment with an emphasis on Afrikaans and country music.
We expect that the book Gondwana History IV, fresh from the printers, will also meet with considerable interest. It is another collection of intriguing stories from Namibia’s past, available in three languages (English, German, Afrikaans). At the Namibia Tourism Expo the latest book and all previous publications by Gondwana are offered at a special price.
