What are the rules and regulations for drones in Namibia? Where are the NFZ locations? Can you fly a Mavic Pro in Namibia, and if you can't, why?
Thanks,
Yhadar

Drones are largely banned within the reserves, that is the main NFZ within Namibia. When you enter, the authorities will seal your drone in a bag so it cannot be used while inside. To fly in other areas of the country you will require a permit, and the authorities are getting very strict on this due to a rising number of tourists causing problems flying their drones around animals and other sensitive areas.

The permit can be got directly from the Namibia government, it is a time-intensive process and requires the user to list all the areas they will fly the drone, along with other general information. Alternatively, we offer a service where we can obtain the permit for you for a small fee.

Hi all, as indicated above, the permit can be obtained from the NCAA by emailing rpas@dca.com.na - it is a straight forward process, everything described above is accurate, except for the fact we are getting stricter because of tourists. On the contrary, NCAA is expanding the drone services, and creating new regulations simply to meet the current significantly expanding demand and scope of the industry, and of course to ensure continued safety of people, animals, and property, their primary objective. The legislation for RPAS in Namibia is being developed in line with international trends, anyone wishing to gain more information should please use the above email address or visit the NCAA offices in Windhoek.
