African Pride says respecting the environment is integral to the development of the Eliakim Namundjebo Plaza. The hotel will have solar panels, green roofs and solar control, while making use of intelligent lighting, thermal and coloured glass. It will link with Freedom Plaza and its tourism kiosk, business facilities, craft market, taxi rank and bus station.

The Bush Camp will have sixteen ensuite tents, each with its own verandah and roof to fl oor windows. Four of these tents are suitable for families.

Meals will be served on a thatched verandah with the bush just a step away. The Mushara Bush Camp is on the same reserve as the Mushara Lodge, Villa Mushara and The Mushara Outpost. It is due to open in August 2009. ANDBEYOND LUXURY SAFARI GROUP CC Africa ( Conservation Corporation Africa) has changed its name to andBEYOND. The new name comes after the group expanded into India. " Our former name, CC Africa, was far from ideal," said Nicky Fitzgerald, Group Marketing Director of andBEYOND. " The word ' Africa' no longer accurately refl ected the company's operating regions. And research indicated that, while ' Conservation' was an important value, it was not a primary motivator for fi rst time guests. While the word ' Corporation' was something of a dampener because no one wants to go on holiday with a corporation!" she added. Capital gain Mushara Outpost's dining room.
