Farewell, Dr. Malan Lindeque

Dr. Malan Lindeque retired from his position as Permanent Secretary to the Ministry of Environment and Tourism on 31 July 2018. 
Dr. Lindeque has been in the public service for nearly 35 years. As a hardworking civil servant he contributed immensely to the conservation efforts and development of tourism in our country.
We thank him for his dedication and hard work and wish him well for any future projects starting with this new chapter.

In this regard, the Secretary to the Cabinet has appointed Mr Teofilus Nghitila as Acting Permanent Secretary, effective immediately.

Travelling with children to Namibia

News on new regulations regarding travelling with minors and / or minors travelling on their own has been circulating.

Please see the below Home Affairs Statement, dated 16 December 2016: 

Travelling abroad with children
As the festive season is upon us, we are aware that many people will be travelling in and out of Namibia. In order to assist travellers to meet requirements of the laws of some of their countries of destination, the Ministry of Home Affairs and Immigration strongly advises travellers as follows regarding travelling with children under the age of 18:
  1. Travellers should at all times carry unabridged (full) birth certificates of the children, in addition to the children's passports;
  2. Adults travelling with children that are not their biological children should be in possession of an affidavit (sworn statement deposed to before a commissioner of oaths) from the child's parents where the child's parents consent that the child may travel with the particular traveller;

Ministry of Home Affairs introduces new fees

As per Government Gazette No. 6647, dated 13 July 2018, new fees have been introduced for services and documents rendered by the Ministry of Home Affairs and Immigration.

These fees include the application of Visa's, Permits and Certificates, Passports and related travel documents and can be viewed here.

Leopard Census - Phase 3: Welcome back, Louisa

After a short visit home, Louisa is back in Namibia and Phase 3 of the Leopard Census officially commenced on 20 July 2018. During this phase, Louisa will once again be in the field setting up camera traps and collecting valuable data for the study.

Even though this phase will be mostly based on fieldwork, there is no such thing as too much data, and we, therefore, would like to remind all our members to distribute the Leopard Questionnaire far and wide for completion. All information will be kept strictly confidential. The completed questionnaire can be email to or submitted to the NAPHA office.

Notice of AGM Motions Deadline

With the NAPHA AGM coming up, we invite all members to submit motions to be tabled at the AGM by

Sports Afield Classic Hunting Issue 2018

Sports Afield is now in its 131st year of publication. As everyone knows, Sports Afield has had the honor of featuring some of outdoor writing's most popular and colorful writers and some of the most beautiful art on our covers over the decades. In this issue we will revisit some of these great stories from our archives. Legends such as Russell Annabel, Colonel Townsend Whelen, and more will fill this issue as well as features from some current greats. The Classic issue will feature a vintage hand-painted cover from our library of historic covers which capture the excitement and romance of the early era of Sports Afield. This issue is always a hit among readers and an issue that will be kept and treasured by collectors.
