Online ticketing enhances tourist experience
• By Confidente Reporter
THE Grow Namibia Foundation, a frontrunner in conservation, sustainability, and community empowerment, has introduced its ground-breaking ticketing and permit booking system.
Starting with Etosha and Sossusvlei National Park permits, this unique platform, a first in Namibia, is expected to alter how tourists experience the country’s renowned locations.
Grow Namibia founder Heiko Dörgeloh pointed out that the new ticketing and permit booking system is a big step forward in the quest for ethical and sustainable tourist practices.
“By allowing tourists to pre-book park permits or tickets, the goal is to improve visitor experiences, reduce environmental impact, and contribute to the preservation of Namibia’s pristine treasures, as well as provide support to national authorities such as the Tourism Ministry, Heritage council, or museums association, to name a few.
“Our aim is to offer tourists a seamless and convenient way to explore Namibia’s stunning national treasures while upholding our commitment to conservation and community empowerment,” Dörgeloh said.
This pioneering approach plans, according to Dörgeloh, to strike a healthy balance between encouraging tourism, safeguarding natural heritage, providing a convenience service to tourists, operators, or agents, and developing economic prospects for local conservancies and communities.
