Mrs. Zelna Hengari, NWR Managing Director says that, “Through the opening of the Hardap Resort, which is less than 260 km south of Windhoek, NWR will close off the chapter of massive renovations that it undertook to bring all its accommodation facilities on par with one another irrespective of their location in the country. It is therefore befitting that as we close off the year we are able to give this present to all our brothers and sisters within the South of Namibia to have an establishment they can be proud of”.

The renovations that the resort has undergone have created an opportunity for organisations located within the South of Namibia to have world class facilities for their meetings and conferences. “It is therefore our intention to be able to host different clients and provide them with their needs irrespective of which of our facilities they choose to use”, says Mrs. Hengari.

About the area of Hardap:

Hardap is well known as an angler’s paradise, with annual competitions held regularly for enthusiasts. But few know that the small Hardap Game Reserve is a haven for black rhino and that the dam and surroundings accommodate one of Namibia’s most strategic great-white-pelican breeding colonies and a thriving freshwater fish institute that is supporting the country’s growing aquaculture industry.

Situated about 24 km from the town of Mariental, the Hardap Recreation Resort encompasses Namibia’s largest dam, Hardap, which is on the Fish River. Although first investigations were carried as early as 1897, construction commenced in 1960 and the dam was completed in 1963. It has a capacity of 320 million m3 and a surface area of 25 km2.

There is a game park on the southern side of the dam. In 1990 black rhino were translocated from the Kunene Region into this reserve. A wide variety of birds occur in the Hardap region, with 284 species recorded to date. The Hardap Freshwater Fish Institute provides fish farms, other state-controlled dams and aquaculture projects with fingerlings for breeding and conducts research.
