Recent Namibia Tourists Being Attacked

Just a heads up...be safe and aware.


Tourists Under Fire at Otjiwarongo Campsite
Jun 08, 2011 (The Namibian/All Africa Global Media via COMTEX) -- AN armed attack on two tourists at an Otjiwarongo campsite has raised fears that crime in the town is spiralling out of control.

Vincent Bosch and Karin Vogelaar, a couple from the Netherlands whose visit to Namibia formed part of a one-year Asia and Africa travel adventure, said the attack came as a nasty surprise.

"We were very shocked. It is not good for Namibia. And not good for tourism here," Bosch said during a telephonic interview last week.

The couple's dream of travelling through Asia and Africa in their yellow Land Cruiser, which started in September 2010, turned into a nightmare on May 27 after they decided to camp at Otjiwarongo before driving to Etosha.
