Namport & Bruges International host honorary sundowner dinner


Namport and Belgium's Port Authority of Antwerp, Bruges International, hosted a sundowner dinner in honour of the visiting King of the Belgians and President Nangolo Mbumba.

The engagement is part of the schedule of the visiting King Philippe, who is in Namibia on a five-day state visit.

Before the start of the dinner, the Belgian royalty was treated to exceptional Namibian hospitality with a sumptuous sundowner cocktail with all the bells and whistles befitting royalty. 

And the weather was a perfect companion.

King Philippe arrives in Walvis Bay


The King of the Belgians landed at Walvis Bay International Airport as he continues his visit to Namibia.

When the Airbus A330-400 commercial aeroplane landed, officials say it was the largest aeroplane the Walvis Bay International Airport has ever received in two decades.

Before landing, the A330-400 used a method called a corkscrew landing, or also spiral landing, which is intended to minimise the risk of the aircraft being hit by anti-aircraft fire from the ground on its way to a destination airport.
