Namibia relies on eco-safari tourism and ranks fifth in the world as the best tourist destination for safari. While Arabs accept safari trips in African countries such as Morocco, Kenya and South Africa, only a few are heading to Namibia because the information available on this country is not sufficient to make a decision and for some people to think that it may represent risks to the tourist, which is an incorrect impression. It is one of the most stable and secure African countries.
