Namibia Planning - NWR Off Season offers?

My eyes are starting to cross with all the reading I've been doing for our upcoming 3 weeks in Namibia in late February/early March 2010. I do recall reading somewhere that the NWR (Namibia Wildlife Resorts) have very good off season specials but can't find any evidence of that on their website. (there is a reference to a special for Namibian and SA residents).

Perhaps it is too early - does anybody know when/if they announce specials?

Thanks!

I suggest you put your question about specials to The Cardboard Box. They do a lot of booking for Namibia. I've used them and they seem to do a good job. See: http://www.namibian.org/

Good luck, Steve

As far as I can tell, NWR has one rate year round. If you are going to book with them, I suggest you contact Madeleine in the NWR Cape Town office. She is very competent has assisted me a couple of times. Recently she was helpful when we were on a wait-list for Etosha in September. It took a while, but we were finally able to get the accommodation we wanted. I also suggest you book as early as possible.

I had a reply to my question on TA - a local operator said that last year about a month before low season NWR announced specials up to 40% off - so I'll watch for those this year

Did the discount apply to everyone or just SADC residents, as is often the case with some of these great prices.

Apparently they apply to non residents but only are announced at the last minute
