NWR unhappy with domestic tourism numbers 


A reduction in domestic tourism is emerging as a concern for the industry.

Namibia Wildlife Resort's (NWR) Manager for Corporate Communications, Nelson Ashipala, says this is despite efforts by the company to promote domestic tourism.

"The mandate highlights that on top of ensuring that we run a facility in parks, we have to ensure that Namibians get to experience the fauna and flora at a fraction of the cost at a reasonable cost. But we haven't been seeing that much response from local tourists. Mostly, it has just been international."
