Renovations and Additions
Tourism in Namibia experienced exceptional growth over the last few years and it is believed to continue. This growth brings with it a diversity of spin-offs and socio-economic development for both the formal and informal sectors.
Accommodation establishments, such as the new Elegant Guest House, is a different and popular way in which accommodation for visitors is being provided. Guest Houses and similar small accommodation establishments are aimed at those tourists and other visitors who seek a quiet and less formal atmosphere. They are not aimed at mass tourism.
The City Council of Windhoek adopted a policy aimed at supporting initiatives which add to the range of opportunities for accommodation in the City and which add to the quality of development and life style (Resolution No. 43/01/94). The right to operate an accommodation establishment is obtained from the Council as a consent use on residential zoned land.
