Miles 72, 108 and Jakkalsputz open for holidays

Namibia Wildlife Resorts (NWR) will renovate the three coastal camping spots under its mandate, Jakkalsputz, Mile 72 and Mile 108. These camp sites are expected to be ready for holiday makers by 1 December.
“After the renovations, guests can expect a revitalized product offering at “the Miles” as well as Jakkalsputz”, NWR revealed to namib times this week.
News about the Miles being closed this holiday season started circulating recently, which NWR confirmed as rumour mongering. Similarly, the privately operated coastal campsites St. Nowhere and Windpomp14 are also open for the season.
It seems the rumor about the closure is based on reports from 2015 which re-circulated recently and that caused the confusion.
“We as the Windpomp14 team would just like to ensure our customers that the article in a newspaper regarding all of the establishments along the coast being closed, does not include Windpomp14. It is business as usual and as always”, read a statement by Sun Karros, managing the establishment.
According to NWR the newly renovated campsites Jakkalsputz, Mile 72 and Mile 108 will still be affordable. “Visitors can expect to pay N$50 per person and N$120 per campsite. The chalets at the Miles will cost N$500 per unit and will accommodate a maximum of two people”, the statement reads.
“I am quite delighted that the Miles and Jakkalsputz have returned and will now be managed by NWR”, says Zelna Hengari, NWR’s Managing Director. Adding: “at the same time, it’s pleasing to note that the additional accommodation will complement our coastal offering provided by Terrace Bay and Torra Bay. Terrace Bay is open throughout the year and Torra Bay opens from the beginning of December up until the end of January.”
“I must also mention that Jakkalsputz will remain open throughout the year while the Miles will open during our major holidays”, Hengari concluded.
