Namibia's Special Selection
Good Bye & Hello!
Dear Friends and Supporters
Let's start this newsletter with a big bang, shall we? ... It will be the last one of its kind!
As everyone of you will surely have
experienced, things can sometimes take strange turns and surprise
events can throw plans off track. But luckily in most of such
circumstances when life closes one door on us another goes open, if
one is willing to see it. This is in a nutshell what happened during
the few months, since we published our previous newsletter.
Our first Good Bye is a very sad
one - to Pam McGillion, our representative in Gauteng/South
Africa until early May 2007, who got killed in a car hijacking
incident in front of her home in Greymont, Johannesburg.
Pam had remained single all her life and was only survived by some
distant relatives in her native Ireland. A widely-known
tourism personality, she was loved and respected in her large circles
of business contacts and private friends all over Southern Africa
for her sunny personality, expertise, and integrity.
So an era came to an end, when we also
agreed with the members of our small marketing community that it was
time to look for entirely different solutions to meet their
promotion requirements - solutions that would serve them well into
as much as in the presence.
signed a representation contract directly with
Exclusive Reservations & Marketing in Windhoek, effective 1 July
2007 - please see contact details in our
Newsletter February 2007.

Naua Naua Game Lodge only maintained their Central Reservations Office in Windhoek, from where rates are distributed as well - direct contact via Tel: +264-61-25 22 99 / Email: email@example.com

The Windhoek Head Office of Namibia's Special Selection has ceased its co-ordination and all other former functions for the marketing community (...but not the promotion of the brand - read more!).
This website will move to a
new location, under a new domain, and become a fully-fledged Namibia Tourism Portal. But, as you
know by now, we usually do things a bit different than the crowds,
so let us surprise you in a while ... we plan to go live towards the
end of September 2007 with
The brand name
"Namibia's Special Selection" will identify the PREMIER
LISTING Section of
Premier Listing will automatically be given to our tourism-related
customers publishing a comprehensive range of
top-quality information and/or marketing material ON-LINE via our Namibia Tourism

way to target markets around the world.

should actually read: 'Hello Again' to Sam's Giardino. They had so much success with their Giardino Website, their advertising and other promotional publications produced and administered by us over the last 4 years that they decided to sign up for another round. And not just that - they also ordered a complete new set of marketing material to be designed taking into account the many improvements done around the guesthouse over the last two years.
So expect to be presented soon with a completely new and appropriately fancy 'Giardino Look' - on CD (distributed to trade partners - as part of the info/marketing packs - by Erika/Exclusive), on "Einstein's" web pages, and of course at Namibia-Unlimited.com!
refers to the developments
needed to meet the future of Namibia Tourism & Marketing:
Here follows just one simple example of such opportunities that bears relevance to our tourism promotion activities: Lesser paper usage means lesser tree cutting, which in turn means preserving water tables and climate; lesser travelling for marketing purposes means reduced fuel consumption, which in turn means limiting environmental damages; reductions in expenses for paper and fuel imports can help improving the economic climate and free up financial resources sorely needed for conserving Namibia's most precious assets ... our people and diverse cultural heritage, our desert and wilderness areas, our wildlife and natural resources, our clean air and healthy climate; and all those other assets that deserve protection and without which it will be impossible to achieve truly sustainable tourism.
Anyone interested in publishing announcements, stories and articles on any Namibia-related topics free of charge, is invited to visit our Internet portal on "Web & Information Technology & Namibia" - www.WebITNamibia.com or WIN for short - for more information. Namibia-Unlimited.com will eventually become WIN's new dedicated tourism section.
With this much to 'digest' in changes and news, it is Good Bye from us for today, until we can say "Hello Again!" under the Namibia-Unlimited banner in a few weeks' time.
