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.

Gelbingen Safaris & Day visitors

Gelbingen Safaris has informed Namibia Reservations about the following:
With immediate effect all day visitors and buses will have to park their vehicles the parking bay supplied at the main gate. This means that the guests will have to walk a short 30-odd meters to the main house. This arrangement is due to the alpacas, which are going to arrive soon, and who will then come and say hello at the gate. They would like to thank the guests for adherence to the new rule.

Kempinski Mokuti Lodge was awarded with the 2010 SALI award

Namibia Reservations has been informed of the following: Almost 2 years later, parking lots in front of chalets are a thing of the past. Pathways are easy and a pleasure to navigate and the resort boast luscious gardens, water features and a beautiful landscape offering you a sense of arrival... It comes as no surprise Kempinski Mokuti Lodge was awarded the 2010 SALI Award of Excellence in the category Landscape Construction. 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.
