O&L Leisure Today - September 2019

Posted on Mon September 16, 2019.

It is a great privilege and with a distinct sense of pride that I join the beautiful and passionate O & L Leisure team!

I could feel the energy the first day I walked into the office and appreciate the warm welcome from the team.

I have been part of the O&L group for 10 years this year, starting my journey off at Namibia Breweries, then moving on to Pick n Pay Namibia, before now joining the O&L Leisure group. I am very excited about this new opportunity to help our business grow and with my love for nature, my passion for people and creating amazing experiences, I look forward to play my part in contributing to the success of O&L Leisure and her people.

Despite the usual challenges we can be very proud of what we, as a company, have achieved. We need to, continuously, look at improving the future, enhancing the guest experiences at our beautiful properties and identify breakthroughs for an even better O & L Leisure.

Namibian resorts and tour operators are making a concerted effort to lure more South Africans. They may also be attracting a greater geographic spread of overseas visitors, but they recognise that their next-door neighbour can be their bread and butter.

Walvis Bay and its adjoining town, Swakopmund, are pumping out the message that flight times from Joburg’s OR Tambo airport are the same as those from Joburg to Cape Town. They may not have world-class winelands but they offer their own attractions. Walvis Bay for adventures like those I had, and
