Get a 40% Discount On Namibian Accommodation

Finding affordable lodges in Namibia can be tricky. While petrol is more affordable than in South Africa, there are only 2 million adults in the country. Low populations tend to mean low resources. As a result, the cost of amenities is driven up which impacts the consumer.

And, if you’re like me, the thought of pumping mattresses at dusk, waking up to sandy tent floors and cooler-box living probably lost its appeal with the last music festival you ran away from in 2019.

So, if you’ve done your tent time, apply for a Gondwana Card and get up to 40% PERCENT OFF your stays at the Gondwana Collection lodges and hotels. This can make a huge different when costing your next Namibian Holiday.

This is an initiative I’m keen to support as too few Africans travel within the continent and this is a great way to improve African travel.

    Hi, My wife and I who are South African passport holders, are travelling to Namibia On Friday 8 November 2019 by road. Is it possible for us to enjoy your offer at your resorts? If so, how can we do this. your speedy response will be much appreciated.

      Hi Ronnie,
      You will need to book at the Gondwana Collection lodges directly, this is just my review/experience of our stay.
      If you don’t have a Gondwana Card then I’m not sure if you will qualify for the discount.
      They do, however, have camping options which are incredibly affordable.
      Check their website or give them a call from the road in the morning.
