Dorob National Park regulations expected to be announced in January 2011

The regulations for the newly proclaimed Dorob National Park are expected to be announced in the first week of January 2011.

Following the park’s proclamation on 1 December 2010, holidaymakers in the former National West Coast Recreation Area (which forms the core of the park) complained bitterly about the enforcement of the regulations – which were never publicized.
The coastal office of the Afrikaans daily, Republikein, reports that the park regulations will differ from those in other conservation areas in the interior. Provision will be made for recreation activities such as walking along the beach and in the Swakop River, as well as the walking of pets in certain areas such as the Swakop River Valley.
According to Republikein most of the problems were reported from Mile 72 where spot fines were issued to visitors who did not pass through the gate of the popular campsite on their way to fishing spots along this stretch of coast. Reports were also received of horse-riders and people walking their dogs in the Swakop River being ordered to leave the area by over-zealous Ministry of Environment and Tourism officials.
The proclamation of the Dorob National Park has also raised questions about the status of the Messum Crater – a popular destination with 4x4 enthusiasts. Republikein’s office at the coast has since established that the inland boundary of the Dorob National Park follows the original boundary of the National West Coast Recreation Area. The boundary cuts through the centre of the crater and the western half of the crater, therefore, now falls in the Dorob National Park.
Off-road enthusiasts are advised to familiarise themselves with the new regulations (when they are made public) – especially with regard to off-road travel.

NWR Gross Barmen Resort closed for redevelopment

The once popular Gross Barmen Resort and Health Spa will be closing its doors for two years while the more than N$285 million re-development phase gives the resort a new look.

Speaking at the official commissioning of the re-development of the resort on behalf of the Minister of Tourism and Environment, Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah, was Dr. Kalumbi Shangula, Permanent Secretary of Tourism. he said the Gross Barmen resort had reached the end of its lifespan as the needs and requirements of the modern tourist have gradually changed. A direct investment of N$220 million was approved by Government for the new concept and design of Gross Barmen and, in addition, Cabinet approved a further N$65 for the redevelopment of the resort through a Government guarantee for financing at the Development Bank.

The new tourism facilities will consist of the main complex of a hotel with 50 beds, a conference hall with 250 seating capacity, 37 chalets, camping sites, a main spa complex with indoor health spa pools, a wellness section with massage rooms, a restaurant and floating bar and recreation facilities such as a mini-golf course, fully equipped gym facilities, squash and tennis courts and a kiddies playground. The Gross Barmen project will officially be launched into the market in the 2012 tourism season as a complete tourism product and will be a complete independent facility operated as a subsidiary of NWR.

Dorob National Park - Namibia's 8th National Park

The creation of the first mega-park in Namibia is now one step closer, following the proclamation of the Dorob National Park.
The newly proclaimed park incorporates the former National West Coast Recreation Area, which stretches from the Ugab River southwards to just north of Swakopmund, as well as a large swathe of the Namib section of the Namib-Naukluft Park.
The 780 000 ha National West Coast Recreation Area was proclaimed in 1973, but as it did not enjoy the same status as game and national parks little could be done to prevent indiscriminate off-road driving and the control of quad bikes, as well as other conservation regulations.
This area, which is renowned for its excellent fishing, is also an important breeding ground of the Damara tern. It also has several extensive lichen fields such as those at Wlotzkasbaken and northeast of Cape Cross.
Among the areas excluded from the park are the following: the railway line between Arandis, Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, the municipal areas of Swakopmund, Walvis Bay and Hentiesbaai, the peri-urban area of Wlotzkasbaken, Cape Cross Lodge, the Cape Cross Seal Reserve, proclaimed roads and several farms in the Swakop River.
The Dorob National Park borders in the south on the Namib-Naukluft Park which in turn is bounded by the Sperrgebiet National Park. North of the Ugab River, the Dorob National Park borders on the Skeleton Coast Park which is to become a transfrontier park with the Ioana National Park in Angola in terms of a memorandum of understanding signed between the governments of Namibia and Angola in 2003.
The establishment of the Dorob National Park on 1 December 2010 is the final piece of the puzzle which will enable Namibia’s conservation authorities to proclaim a mega-park, provisionally named the Namib Skeleton Coast National Park (NSCNP). It will stretch between the Orange River and the Kunene River and will also adjoin the IAi-IAis/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park (between Namibia and South Africa) in the south.
The 10.754 million hectare mega-park will be the 6th largest terrestrial park in the world and the largest in Africa.

Developments and updates from Namibia Country Lodges

Developments in Khaudum:
The long-awaited developments in Khaudum National Park are in the final planning stages. The Khaudum North Complex consists of three Conservancies with whom NCL has a Joint Venture. The focus is to promote Tourism and create much needed employment within the Conservancies and to protect one of Namibia last wilderness areas. Renovation work on both existing campsites should kick off at the start of February 2011. The aim is to keep the nine campsites rustic to blend in with the natural wilderness area but to provide communal ablution facilities with hot and cold running water and flush toilets. Each site will have its own "braai" area and grid with a water point. Bonus - no electricity for the true nature lover!

Estimated completion is about end of April, weather permitting and provided the elephants don't pop in for a look and disrupt the work.
The second phase will be construction of both Sikereti and Khaudum luxury bush camps.
Both camps will have eight en-suite tented units on decks and one central main area.
The date of completion is difficult to estimate considering the challenging environment of the Khaudum, building logistics and strict environmental guidelines we need to adhere to while building.
For more details:

Namushasha Country Lodge:
Is enjoying tremendous success with most of their game drives. They are encountering large herds of elephant, buffalo and a variety of antelope species on a daily basis. It still remains a birders paradise though, especially with all the migrants returning with the rainy season.

For more details:

Solitaire Country Lodge:
Camels Namibia has agreed to permanently base their six adult camels and two calves at Solitaire Country Lodge. Some guests find the camels amusing, while others dare to
take a short ride. Camels Namibia hopes to offer longer day rides, combined with a sleep-out option by early next year.
For more details:

Twyfelfontein Country Lodge:
Renovated their bathrooms and painted the inside of all their rooms. They are systematically converting all their beds to ¾ beds with new mattresses and linen. New cotton duvets will replace the blankets. We should have new images

News from Kalizo Lodge

This year for us at kalizo went from one extreme to the other with the worst flood we have ever experienced which closed kalizo for 2 months to the best period we have had with wonderful business starting with the Soccer World Cup right through to the new year of 2010.

Kalizo is looking really great with lots of renovations and alterations being done this year. We can now accommodate 6 more people in self catering making a total of 24 people in self catering.

The Fishing was really good this year as well.

Kalizo is now in a conservancy area, which extends from Kalimbeza to Milindi which is fantastic, as we now have a guard at the carmine – bee – eaters. We had a Film crew from Japan who filmed the carmines as well. We are now going to be part of the Kaza, (5 countries,) which will be the largest Conversation area in the World, which will be a benefit to all of us, bringing a large amount of game into our areas.
Kalizo river frontage has been increased by 360meters, and in this area we will be putting in a new Camp site and additional self catering houses.

Val was elected Personality of the Year for the Namibian Hospitality Industry (HAN) for her contribution in promoting the Caprivi Region. They said that Val had worked tirelessly (often against all odds) to promote not only the Caprivi region but Namibia as a whole.

For all those that know the Caprivi, it is a long journey to get here, but once you are here we have excellent game parks in the Caprivi Region and on the border the one of the best game parks in Southern Africa – Chobe National Park. We are also only 250km from Victoria Falls (One of the 7 great wonders of the world.)

Happenings in Namibia

They have completed two luxury tents for the ‘budget- conscious’ traveller. These tents are equipped with comfortable beds, en suite bathroom and ceiling fans. Each is also covered by a grass roof, which makes them comfortably cool even in the heat of the day. NEW AT KUPFERQUELLE RESORT:

More exciting developments are planned for 2011!
There are so many interesting old and new things to do in Lüderitz. Beside the very interesting city tours on offer, there is the new Oyster Farm and Bar, which is well worth a visit. A selection of boat cruises are also on offer from a sailing boat to a catamaran, also catering for bigger groups. These boat cruises are very exclusive and interesting since
there are many small islands that one passes by during the trip. Of course you will see dolphins and other marine life, but no other place in Namibia will you be able to see the Jackass Penguins.
The opening of the Sperrgebiet road is no longer a distant dream, but will be reality in the near future. This again opens up a whole new route in southern Namibia.
Other news from the hotel is that as from 1 January
2011 all rooms in the hotel will be non-smoking rooms.

Our wildlife is growing at Rostock Ritz and Kücki reported on 4 November that a new baby Oryx was born and spotted during the scenic drive. Julia was at the lodge on 1st and 2nd November and spotted Springbuck, Oryx, Kudus, Ostrich, Jackal and ample
of Zebra during the scenic drive.
With a bit of luck when one stays up a little later at the restaurant, you might see the jackal that comes for his daily evening visit onto the terrace. ZELDA GAME & GUEST FARM:
The camp sites have been completely revamped with new water points and each now also has an electricity point. They also added nice large tables at each site.

Refurbishment notice for Kempinski Mokuti Lodge

Please be informed that Kempinski Mokuti Lodge will start the refurbishment on 98 guest rooms at Kempinski Mokuti Lodge as of the 28.11.10.

The Lodge will not close down for the time of the renovation works and all bookings will be honoured and are confirmed as by their reservations department.

The refurbishment will run next to the normal operations and will have minimal impact on the every day operation. The Lodge is very wide spread and though it is possible to take complete room blocks out of operation, thus guests will hardly notice that work on the rooms are done.

From March onwards they will renovate only 10 rooms at a time and as soon as each room block is finished, these rooms will be integrated into operations again and the next 10 rooms will be worked on. The room blocks, which is being worked on will be fenced off, so hardly any construction work is visible for guests. All rooms will be fully refurbished by October 2011.

They will renovate all rooms of the Deluxe, Safari Club and Safari Suite category.

Ombalantu Baobab recommended as National Heritage Site

The famous Ombalatu Baobab is Outapi has been recommended for proclamation as a national heritage place by the National Heritage Council of Namibia.

The landmark Baobab tree, locally known as Omukwa wa Nakafingo na Temba, is estimated to be between 700 and 800 years old and has a height of about 20 m. The branches of the ancient tree provided an ideal vantage point and served as a lookout post in days gone by.

The cavernous trunk served as a sanctuary to the Aambalantu people fleeing attackers and was also used as a storage place. It was put to use of a post office in 1940 and later became the centrepiece of a base of the South African military. A stone pulpit and benches are reminders of its use as a chapel during this period. An opening of about 1 m high by 2 m wide provides access to the hollow trunk which can accommodate about 20 people.

The large Baobab is the focal point of the Ombalantu Baobab Tree Heritage Centre in Outapi.
Submissions and requests for hearings by members of the public on the recommended proclamation of the Ombalantu Baobab must be submitted to the National Heritage Council of Namibia before Monday, 29 November.
Other well-known baobabs in North-Central Namibia include King Nashilongo’s Baobab which served as the king’s office in Tsandi. Sir Howard’s Baobab, also in Tsandi, was named after the first Administrator of South West Africa, Sir Howard Gorges, who visited the area in June 1916.

Also recommended for proclamation as a national heritage place is the Okahao Baobab - an infamous tree during the years of the liberation struggle.
The Ombalantu Baobab is not the first baobab in the country to be declared a national monument. That honour goes to the baobab on the farm Keibib, north of Grootfontein. At the time of its proclamation in 1951, it was the largest known Baobab in Namibia’s commercial farming area.

New facilities at Fish River Canyon Main View Point

Namibia’s Environment and Tourism Minister Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah will officially open the new Fish River Canyon viewpoint on Thursday, 21 October.

The facilities at the Main Viewpoint overlooking the Fish River Canyon were upgraded by the Strengthening the Protected Area Network (SPAN) in teams of an agreement between the Ministry of Environment and Tourism, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF).

The upgrade includes a raised viewing platform built from local stone, shaded tables and benches where visitors can sit, environmentally friendly toilets and displays on various aspects of the canyon which ranks amongst the largest in the world.

The Fish River Canyon is the main attraction of the Ai-Ais Hot Springs Park and is the largest source of park entry fees to the Ministry after the Etosha National Park and the Namib-Naukluft Park – with an annual income of N$5 million (US$734 000 at current exchange rate) per year.

The Ai-Ais Hot Springs Park forms part of the /Ai-/Ais/-Richtersveld Transfrontier Park (ARTP) was established in terms of a treaty signed by the Namibian President and his South African counterpart in 2003. Two-thirds of the park are in Namibia, while the remaining third enjoys the protection of the Richtersveld National Park in South Africa.

The opening of the new facilities will also be attended by South Africa’s Minister of Water and Environmental Affairs, Buyelwa Sonjica, the United Nations Development Programme Resident Representative in Namibia, Kari Egge, and Karas Region Governor Dawid Boois.

International Day of the Rhino

22 September was officially the International day of the Rhino.
At a recent award ceremony for Namibian Ministry of Environment and Tourism field staff the Minister laid down the law to poachers. With recent reports that world-wide poaching of rhino (in Africa and Asia) is at a 15-year high, the Namibian government is being even more vigilant with measures to prevent poaching even though this is currently not a major threat to Namibia as the last reported case of poaching an endangered black rhino took place over a decade ago. In fact Namibia has some of the heaviest penalties in Africa for poaching of protected species and this has been an effective deterrent.
Namibia was the first African country to incorporate protection of the environment into its constitution, as well as being the only country in Africa that trans-locate black rhinos out of National Parks and move them to communal conservancy areas. Namibia also has the largest population of black rhino which is managed through a custodianship programme with land owners and farmers.

Namibia is leading the way in many areas of wildlife conservation in Africa and your safaris to Namibia directly contribute towards these conservation efforts.

The South African Landscapers Institute (SALI) was formed in 1984 by a group of progressive landscapers, all with the mission to improve the image and standing of the landscape industry. Project Mokuti kicked off in June 2008 with the desire to create an ecological landscape that would blend the resort into the Etosha Bushfeld and is what has been achieved.

Game viewing at Onguma

Onguma Game Reserve has sent Namibia Reservations the following information: Game viewing is incredible at Onguma at the moment! The waterholes at the camps are very busy and there is a lot of game to see.

A few days ago, something very exiting happened at Onguma Tented Camp: While the guests were enjoying a pre-dinner drink, an impala nearly became dinner for a lion. The impala was chased right through the lounge - luckily the lion did not follow. However the impala did become dinner later for a leopard. It was caught at the entrance to the staff houses.

Yesterday a black rhino was spottet close to the Onguma Plains Camp (Fort) and a leopard at Aasvoel Nes (a waterhole close to the Fort)

Enjoy the game viewing experience at the Onguma Game Reserve.

Namibia Reservations and the famous Otjiwarongo Parcour Tournament

This last Sunday the 25th of July, Namibia Reservations got involved in a very unique equestrian event.
This year we have decided to do things a bit different and literally set the bar high on the Mini Cross Country Derby. This Derby consisted of eighteen NAMEF ( Namibian Equestrian Federation) graded gates, and one nineteenth non-graded Namibia Reservations gate.
However in the seven height classes which were 70cm;80cm;90cm;100cm;110cm;120cm and 130cm, our gate was set 20cm higher than the other eighteen gates the riders whom cleared our gate each got N$100.00. Those who did not clear the gate donated their N$100.00 to the Reitgemeinschaft Of Otjiwarongo.
Two highlights made this event a remarkable one.
The first was Mr Harmann Falk rider class 90cm, level J6 and his trusty Old Stallion Taifun level J7 cleared our gate at 110cm earning himself N$100.00. Mr. Falk is also the oldest registered Parcour Participant in Southern Africa. Still riding alongside his son and grandson.
The second highlight was Michelle Künzle rider class 130cm, level J3 and her Horse Zambezi Level J2 cleared the Namibia Reservations gate at a staggering 150cm. A Remarkable feat for horse and rider. Miss. Künzle also represents Namibia internationally and if all goes well with her this year she will earn the 140cm rider class which is already a globally recognised parcour class. We wish Miss Künzle all the best of luck with this already in the bag grade.
