Preparations are underway

Last week Ralph and I (Rainer) were in Bitterwasser for a working visit. Of course by plane, as befits our status.

Preparations are underway

The flight with Eurowings and the entry were completely problem-free. A PCR test, not older than 72 hours, the completed entry form from the Internet and proof of health insurance abroad were all we needed. For the return trip, we only had to fill out the online entry form and show proof of vaccination once.
Full Covid19 vaccination or proof of recovery (2G) is mandatory for our guests this year. Our staff at the lodge will also all be vaccinated twice by the season.
On 06.09. the first two containers will be loaded. 4 more on 11.and 12.September. Then 30 airplanes with the Golden Karoo go on a big trip. Arrival in Walvis Bay on 19.10.
We are looking forward to a hopefully normal gliding season in Bitterwasser.

Bitterwasser orders PV plant and reduces its carbon footprint

Namibia obtains most of its electricity from South Africa. There, mainly hard coal power plants are in operation, because South Africa can extract hard coal in opencast mining.
Now the exhaust gases of the South African hard coal power plants are not as well cleaned as in Germany. Therefore it is important to do without this electricity.

The first gliders are loaded and on their way.

This year the gliders will be brought to Bitterwasser in two groups. At the moment no forwarder can guarantee when the containers will arrive. Therefore we have decided to send four containers a little earlier so that they will actually be in Bitterwasser on November 01 for the start of the season.
