AGM Feedback

We had an awesome AGM with various presenters providing detailed information on Namibia and beyond. Members not able to attend, most definitely missed out on a great event. 
The day function was followed by a magnificent Gala Evening.

Thank you for all the support that NAPHA received.

We herewith share the Ministers and the NAPHA President's address respectively:

Opening address by the Honorable Minister Pohamba Shifeta

Danene van der Westhuyzen's address

Sincere congratulations to Mr Johannes Urembwe for winning NAPHA Hunting Assistant of the Year. Amongst his prizes were NAD3,000 in cash, a pair of Minox Binoculars, camping equipment,  a Namib Mills Hamper, and many more.


The surprise VIP trip this year, took our highly valued supporters and donors to Nambwa Lodge inside the Bwabwata National Park in the Zambezi Region northern Namibia. This area is renowned for excellent game sightings and proved exactly that to our special group. The outstanding service by African Monarch Lodges' flagship property Nambwa Lodge, added the crown to a unique experience. We thank Desert Air and Profile Safaris for their superb flying skills. 
Below some reflections of this wonderful experience.


Airport Audit

Federation of Namibian Tourism Associations (FENATA)

Dear colleagues in the tourism industry,
Today (29 November) I received the news that Namibia has passed the ICAO audit that was ongoing for the last couple of days. This is excellent news as international air access to our country will at least for now continue unhindered.
Unfortunately, we are not yet in the clear in terms of air traffic in Namibia. On 08th November 2018, the Minister of Works and Transport issued a government gazette with far-reaching amendments to the Civil Aviation Act.
A key concern about the amendments is that from 01st January 2019 no commercial flights are allowed to unlicensed airfields. Most of the airstrips used by lodges in remote areas are unlicensed.
The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association has drafted an urgent letter to the Minister of Works and Transport, which is very detailed with all the concerns about the amended regulations.
I, in turn, have drafted a letter to the Minister of Environment and Tourism to inform him about this as well. You will find a copy of this attached as well.
Please note, that the new regulations as published in the Government Gazette (also attached for your reference) will effectively ground most air charter operators from 01st January 2019 and will have a significant impact on lodges that rely on guests being flown in.
We are awaiting the formal response from the Minister of Works and Transport, but the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association is already exploring legal options to ensure that they can continue business.
I will keep the industry informed about any new developments.
To all associational partners: please feel free to share this email amongst your members.
Kind regards,
Bernd Schneider
Chairman: FENATA (Federation of Namibian Tourism Associations)
