NAMIBIA WELCOMES ALL INTERNATIONAL TOURISTS AND ARRIVALS BACK

Our travel prices for the year 2021 remain unchanged from the previous year! For the period January 2021 to the end of April 2021 we are offering a discount of 20% on all trips and safaris listed on our website!

In August 2020, the Namibian government announced the Tourism Revival Initiative, which aims to revitalize the sector and welcome international tourists and newcomers back.

The country has seen a significant drop in coronavirus cases since September 2020 and has been able to relax many restrictions. Namibia continues to closely monitor the situation and remain vigilant in fighting the virus, with a focus on the safety and well-being of its residents and visitors within its borders.

The following procedures are now in place:

All travelers arriving in Namibia with a negative PCR test result no older than 72 hours are allowed to travel on to their final destination in the country. Since December 23, 2020, the negative PCR test is now even valid for a further 7 days upon arrival. In addition, you no longer have to retest after 5 days. When you arrive, you just have to present your passport, our travel program and fill out a health questionnaire and then you can travel freely with me in the country.

Some background information:

Until about 300 days ago, Namibia was the “boom country” especially among German travelers to Africa. After a brief increase in the number of “infected people”, the numbers across the country have fallen so far that Namibia was removed from the list of travel warnings issued by the German Foreign Office in September 2020. Unfortunately, Namibia was put back on the list of risk areas on December 26, 2020. The number of active corona infected people is on January 8, 2021 with 3,776 people. However, Namibia is in the starting blocks and expects a resurgence of tourism, … especially with international guests!

Development aid in a third world country does not have to be a government task for the citizens! Every responsible citizen can now provide development aid individually by booking a holiday directly on site in Namibia. Give each other a little jolt and here in Namibia gain some distance from an existing “lock-down”!

From sunny Namibia I send healthy greetings to you all.
