Second quarter occupancy increases, but still miles away from 2019 levels

The second quarter of 2021 revealed a national average occupancy of just over 23%, higher than the all-time low occupancy of 4.5% seen during the same period last year, the Hospitality Association of Namibia announced this week.

The Hospitality Association noted that while the tourism industry still has a long and hard road ahead to full recovery, the situation seems to slowly be moving out of the deepest and most challenging time of the coronavirus pandemic to date.

The first quarter of 2021 saw occupancy levels increase to 20%, followed by the 23% increase in the second quarter. However, these levels are way lower when compared to almost 54% seen in 2019 before the COVID-19 pandemic.
