NAMIBIA Wildlife Resorts (NWR) has announced that 40 guests that were isolated at its Hardap Resort from 25 March until 9 April were safely released without showing any symptoms of Covid-19.

According to a statement released by the NWR this week, during their stay many guests expressed great appreciation towards the resort staff. One of the guests who was in quarantine there, Jochen Berends said, “It’s time to go home. I just finished the 14-day quarantine at NWR Hardap Resort. Many thanks to the NWR team for the professional service.”

Hardap Resort assistant manager Sophia Burger was also grateful for the experience and the way that her team came together to contribute to the national cause. She wanted to assure future Hardap Resort guests that the place has been totally disinfected and sanitised by the Ministry of Health and Social Services to ensure their safety.

“No one should be afraid to come and pay us a visit after the lockdown has been removed,” said Burger.

NWR acting managing director Matthias Ngwangwama also drove to the resort to inspect the disinfection process and to ensure the resort was indeed in a position to host guests. He was very grateful towards the government for entrusting NWR with such an essential role.

“I would like to assure potential visitors to the Hardap Resort that the place remains safe, as all 40 isolated guests were released without any symptoms. I want to pay homage to our employees, who in my eyes are heroes and heroines who were at the frontline, taking care of the quarantined guests during their 14-day stay at the resort.”

Hardap Resort is situated about 260 km south of Windhoek. It encompasses Namibia’s largest dam, Hardap, on the Fish River. Hardap is well known as an angler’s paradise, with competitions held regularly for outdoor enthusiasts.
