Discover the only real endemic bird species Namibia has to offer in the private nature reserve of the Namib Desert Lodge.
The Namib Desert Lodge in the Namib Sand Sea, recently registered as an UNESCO Nature World Heritage Site, is a popular Bird & Birder Friendly Establishment.
BirdsConTour aims to promote the enjoyment, conservation, study and understanding of wild birds and their habitats. One way to achieve this is by offering Bird & Birder Friendly Awards.
Recently the Gondwana Collection Namib Desert Lodge was identified. Namib Desert Lodge meets certain benchmarks, such as a bird and birder friendly garden, bird friendly waterholes and bird friendly practices in their private nature reserve surrounding the lodge establishment.
Jörg and Anja, the managers of the Bird & Birder Friendly Namib Desert Lodge, together with Manfred Goldbeck receive the Bird & Birder Friendly Award from Stefan Rust, representative of BirdsConTour.
Therefore the Namib Desert Lodge was rewarded with a three penguin-rated Bird & Birder Friendly Award.
Mr. Manfred Goldbeck, the founder of the Gondwana Collection, explains the private Gondwana Parks.
