Tourism in Namibia is a growing market and has a tremendously positive effect on the local population and conservation of nature and wildlife.
Located centrally in Namibia's seaside resort Swakopmund the guesthouse offers seven spacious rooms each with their own little garden and as one expects from the name, a healthy organic breakfast, with fresh homemade juices/smoothies, home-baked breads and much more is served either in the breakfast room or outside in the garden amongst freshly grown herbs. Organic means that food offered has been produced through practices fostering cycling of resources, promoting ecological balance, and conserving biodiversity.
When talking about recycling, Heidi showed her funky ideas of having upcycled wooden doors and similar into desks and picture frames when furnishing her Organic Square Guesthouse.
Planting native plants in her garden, Heidi helps attract native birds, being a great source of entertainment for her guests, as well as an organic pest control solution.
This idea of supporting a good and healthy lifestyle in tourism earns the Organic Square Guesthouse a two penguin-rated Conservation & Tourism Support 2016 Award from BirdsConTour.
