Namibia expects over 500 000 tourists

Despite the Covid-19 wreckage that gobbled the tourism industry globally, the international tourist arrival trends to Namibia from January to December 2021 indicate regaining 37.81% of the lost market when compared to 2020 figures, and 2022 is showing continued increases in arrivals.

As with almost all other countries, tourism in Namibia has been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic.  The sector suffered a decline in international tourist arrivals of around 90% in 2020. Speaking during the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland, last week, tourism minister Pohamba Shifeta said the final total international arrivals for the year 2022 are expected to increase to above the 500 000 international travellers mark – up from 354 508 arrivals recorded in 2021, although this remains well down on the over 1.5 million arrivals in 2019.
