Namibia Information

Namibia is not a particullarly tolerant country. The commonly held view seems to be that to be a good person you need to be christian, hard working & straight. The founding father and first president of Namibia, Dr Sam Nujoma, has on several occasions made his views on homesexuality known. In summary it is a foreign disease and has no place in Namibia.

The good news is that many hotel and lodge owners take a much more liberal view of homesexuality and it is unlikely that you will encounter problems (if you are booking your holiday with us, which you should be doing, let your consultant know so they can direct you towards more 'liberal' places).

As a general rule we would suggest keeping your sexual preferences low key while travelling in Namibia.

We think the cross to bear is not for those who are gay, but those who believe in crosses in the first place. Jon Armstrong
