Namibia Tourism Board (NTB) Regulations: Routine Inspections
NAPHA Office received various queries relating to the announcement of routine inspections conducted by the NTB together with a list of requested documentation. Annexure 10 of Government Gazette No 3235, states the requirements for registration applicable to Trophy Hunting Operations. The attached NTB Application form lists the requested documentation applicable to Trophy Hunting Operators without Accommodation.
As per Article 20 of the above Gazette (page13) all outfitters are required to keep a Client Attendance Register - copies available from the NAPHA Office.
NAPHA is acutely aware of certain issues requiring discussion with NTB (amongst others Vehicle Discs, Food Handlers Certificates, etc.) and will provide feedback in due course.
We urge all members to give their full co-operation to the inspectors in their line of duty.
Game Meat Growth Strategy
Agra, together with the Ministry of Trade (MITSMED) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) are implementing a Game Meat Growth Strategy, including options to start exporting game meat overseas. They have compiled a short questionnaire to help identify current and possible game meat producers and to better understand the sector and needs of the game meat industry value chain.
Please answer the 2 minute questionnaire to help grow the Game Meat industry and potentially become a part thereof. Open the attached document.
Once completed, please send to Dr Pauline Lindeque at e-mail: PaulineL@agra.com.na
Bird flu hits SA
Extract from NAU Newsletter
The highly pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) has recently been confirmed in South Africa. It is the same virus that caused an outbreak in Harare, Zimbabwe a few weeks ago.  This is an extremely serious disease that can cause up to a 100% mortality rate among chickens in an infected house within 3 days. Although some strains of the virus can make other animals and humans sick, this particular strain is not known to be a threat.

The disease is spread to chickens by wild water birds (through their droppings).  Contamination takes place when droppings are stepped in and carried into chicken houses, or if chickens get into contact with contagious water (open water sources such as drinking water and cooling ponds). Contaminated manure, equipment, vehicles, animals and culls also spread the disease rapidly.
Signs of the disease: a sudden increase in chicken mortality and a large number of birds showing respiratory signs and depression.
Prevention can only be done through stringent bio-safety measures.  No vaccines and no treatment is possible.
For a list of bio-safety measures released by AVIMUNE and availed by the NPI (Namibia Poultry Industry) in support of Namibian poultry producers, click here
