Training in Namibia
Lucky Ditabo, Wilderness Systems Trainer, spent an incredible week in Namibia providing Wilderness Window training to our Namibia Travel Shops. The sessions were in person and it was wonderful for Lucky to connect with the teams and catch up with new and old faces alike.
Lucky arrived in Windhoek on 3 September, where he spent a few days before self-driving down to Sossusvlei for a two-night stay at Little Kulala, and a site inspection of Kulala Desert Lodge.
Lucky was joined on his travels by three members of the Namibia Travel Shop team, Francoise Harmse, Paulus Negongo and Mclinda Roswitha Kinda.
Lucky also had time to interact with his Wilderness colleagues on the trip, which he thoroughly enjoyed. Here he sums it up:
“On Arrival in Windhoek, I received a warm welcome and a dinner date at the famous Joe’s Beerhouse with Nathaly Ahrens, Constance Kangumine, Roberto Vieira, Francoise Harmse and Carol Barnard. The team from the Namibia Travel Shop also organised a nice get-together and braai. A highlight in Sossusvlei was climbing the Big Daddy Dune which was very exciting. We made it down to Dead Vlei, and later in the afternoon we visited Sesriem Canyon. At the end of each day we enjoyed sundowner stops with breathtaking African sunsets”.
Lucky drove from Windhoek to Sossusvlei and loved watching how the landscapes changed form. He found the gravel roads easy to navigate in his Wilderness Toyota Hilux. The Spreetshoogte Pass was spectacular but required good driving skills with its sheer drops. The team also spotted oryx, ostrich and springbok along the way.
Lucky bid farewell to the Namibia team on 10 September after a very successful trip!
The team really appreciated Lucky’s visit and training
“Thank you for sending Lucky over to Namibia, a truly awesome person to have around and training went smoothly with the well-received interactive sessions. The teams had loads of questions so the face-to-face training was invaluable!” – Roberto Vieira
“Lucky is a really good trainer and very patient. The personal touch was really needed. Taking the team through all the tabs in the Window meant we now know where to find the necessary information. We learned so much. Please share our immense appreciation with Lucky”. – Constance Kangumine
“It was awesome having Lucky here, and going through the Window with my team was well worth it. Thank you Lucky and Ashley for making this possible”. – Nathaly Ahrens
