CONNECTORS OF POSITIVE CHANGE

CONNECTORS OF POSITIVE CHANGE

This is Capricorn, and we are proud to support the “This is Namibia” initiative and play a role in creating positive change for the Namibian tourism industry. We hope to welcome you to this beautiful part of Africa soon!

From the beginning of time the stars have filled Africans with wonder. Our ancestors did not just admire their beauty as they gazed at the night sky.

They used the constellations of stars for measuring time, the seasons, cycles and direction. One such constellation is Capricornus, called by ancient people “the southern gate of the sun”.

It is from this constellation that the Tropic of Capricorn got its name many centuries ago, when the sun was in the Capricornus constellation at the time of the southern solstice. All lines of latitude have geographical relevance, but to the people of southern Africa the Tropic of Capricorn is more. Spanning across the centre of Namibia, it receives the brightest rays of sun on the day of the summer solstice. It signals the time of abundance with generous offerings from nature.

We took our inspiration from the Tropic of Capricorn, the band that symbolised abundance and created positive change for people. Creating positive change is what every member of our organisation strives to achieve every day. To find innovative ways in which to bring together our customers and their aspirations. We passionately believe that by connecting the people of this region to opportunity and prosperity, we can help with taking the region closer to realising its greatest self.

Our humble beginnings in Windhoek were born out of a tenacious spirit of entrepreneurship. Since then our journey has led us on a path of achievements, growing us beyond Windhoek and Namibia. Rooted in the pillars of “W” for Windhoek, where it all began, the three lines of our logo represent our values of being open, dedicated and inspired. We are proud of our logo: it reflects our legacy and how we got to where we are now.

And as before we will always achieve our successes by holding true to our values.

Along with this we will continue to reach for the stars. Only, that now we seek them in the eyes of the ones whose lives we have made better. Not only are we inspired by the dreams of those who call this beautiful part of Africa home, but we want to make these dreams a reality for them.

The future shines brightly, and we will journey towards it as one.

This is Capricorn, and we are proud to support the “This is Namibia” initiative and play a role in creating positive change for the Namibian tourism industry. We hope to welcome you to this beautiful part of Africa soon!
