Windhoek, 13 December 2016 – Over the past few months, quite a number of tourists have visited some Namibia Wildlife Resorts (NWR) resorts/camps with the intention of undertaking the hiking trails at the respective facilities.

However, the extreme weather conditions that Namibia has been facing pose a great risk to tourists, as many of them are not familiar with the extreme conditions that certain facilities experience at this time of the year. Another major risk has been the underestimation of the impact that the heat might have on them, which in most cases can lead to dehydration, heat exhaustion or heat stroke.

“We are therefore appealing to those who intend to go hiking to seek information from the respective facilities on whether it is advisable for them to undertake their planned hike. This will provide them with the relevant information before embarking on their excursion,” says Mufaro Nesongano, NWR Corporate Communications and Online Media Manager.
