At hand to receive the container were a score of people working in tourism and nature conservation.
Namibia’s Community Game Guards got a massive shot in the arm through a generous donation of equipment worth N$1 million from REI International Adventure on Wednesday.
Present at the opening of the container was the Minister of Environment and Tourism, Hon Uahekua Herunga as well as NASCO Director, Maxi Louis and Community Liaison Manager at Wilderness Safaris, Jermain Ketji.
