- Namibia Covid-19 update April 2021
Travel to Namibia is on the increase, more and more airlines are returning to our country, there are regular and reliable flights from Johannesburg, Cape Town, Frankfurt and Addis Ababa.
We are managing to offer safaris that include Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe, this made possible by effective and efficient covid testing centres.
After some good rains, the country is green and beautiful, the animals are fattening up and preparing for a cool winter, the ideal time to come and visit us on safari. Damaraland and Kaokoland have also received good rains meaning that this area will be particularly special to visit in 2021.
If you are concerned about covid-19, then a self-drive safari or a private guided safari is ideal, there is very little contact with other people along the way. It is just you and the wide open nature spaces of Namibia.
We have been lucky, our covid cases remain low with no more than about 1200 active cases countrywide at the moment. The one week incidence rate is around 30. We move around freely in Namibia, there are very few restrictions other than a curfew at 10:00 p.m and gatherings are limited to no more than 50-100 people.
We have received our vaccines and the good news is that the tourism industry has been included as "front line workers" meaning that people in the tourism industry have started getting immunized. This includes the staff in our office, we have already had our first AstraZeneca jab.
So come and visit! Now is the best time to travel to Namibia. Last minute bookings are welcome, a weeks notice is all we need.
