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:
• All the rooms now are equipped with small fridges.
• Additional bedside lamps were added.
• A swimming club was formed and now uses the pool at Kupferquelle for training.
• Kupferquelle now also boasts with volleyball equipment, as well as 2 trampolines.
• Throughout the whole resort solar panels were added so that each chalet now has it‘s own solar panel.
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.
