- Covid-19 Update 15 September 2021
New Covid-19 cases in Namibia are down to less than 100 new infections
countrywide per day. Our summer is here and we currently have covid-19 under
control. Namibia has recently received a new supply of Johnson and Johnson
vaccines, more and more Namibians are getting vaccinated. Fortunately the
majority of those working in the tourism industry are now vaccinated meaning
that travelers to Namibia should be able to enjoy a safari holiday without the
fear of contracting covid-19 whilst here.
We have had an update of our Covid-19 restrictions on 13 September 2021.
The new rules are that we are allowed gatherings of up to 150 people,
restaurants and bars are open with no restrictions other than a daily curfew
The requirements for the PCR test on arrival in Namibia has also
changed, the PCR test result may now be up to 7 days old on arrival in Namibia.
This gives visitors to Namibia enough time to reach us with one Covid-19 test
even if they are traveling to us from North America or Asia.
As tourism numbers are still fairly low, our country is really
attractive to visit at the moment. The lodges are open, there are many animals
to see and the country is looking beautiful.
See you in Namibia soon!
