Namibia Wildlife Resorts: Plastic bags ban still to be implemented (UPDATE)!

update (18 June 2018): According to the spokesperson of Namibia's Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET), the ban of plastic bags in national parks in Namibia is not yet being implemented as the ministry is still putting measures and systems in place before enforcement and full implementation. The MET confirmed that an amendment to the regulation relating to the Nature Conservation Ordinance, 1974 (4 of 1875) to restrict the use of plastic bags in national parks was approved and gazetted in 2017.

Namibia Wildlife Resorts (NWR), the state-owned enterprise mandated to run the tourism facilities within the protected areas of Namibia, has informed its stakeholders that with immediate effect the usage of pastic bags is no longer allowed within the country's National Parks. We'll keep you updated as soon as more information are available.
