NAMIBIA WARNING!!

Jump to last reply

WARNING on NAMIBIA: a large recent increase in violent crime against tourists (particularly white tourists) in NAMIBIA!!
My family was recently subjected to a very violent crime episode in the city of Luderitz (on the southern part of Namibian coast). We were physically assaulted (including sexual torture using hot coals, ice picks, and other horrible devices) and robbed of all our possessions -- we were left barefoot and virtually naked in cold weather!! The local police refused to help and even made fun of our predicament!! The main police office in Windhoek, while more sympathetic to our plight, refused to investigate this assault. E-mails to high-level government officials were left unanswered.

Afterwards, we met many travelers with similar horror stories. While most of the incidents we heard of were confined to the southern half of Namibia, violent crime is very rapidly rising EVERYWHERE in Namibia. Predominantly white tourists are targeted, motivated by the racial hatred of the local black population. Most of the police force is racially prejudiced as well.

Send a message to Namibian government: AVOID TRAVEL TO OR THROUGH NAMIBIA until "tourist protection" is more than just "lip-service". Use our tragic experience to save yourselves and your possessions.
