Cape Town – Prince William is currently undertaking a private work trip through Africa that will see him visit countries including Namibia, Tanzania, and Kenya.

The Duke of Cambridge was given a warm welcome to Windhoek, Namibia on Monday, 24 September by Vice-President Nangolo Mbumba.

Upon his arrival the gentlemen discussed cross-border anti-poaching efforts. William later gave a speech, discussing the purpose of his visit.

“My visit to Namibia this week is focused on conservation. This is an issue very close to my heart, and I know is a matter of deep pride to you all as well,” William told guests at a British High Commissioner’s reception.

Of his morning out, William said: “I was staggered by the beauty and sheer remoteness of this incredible landscape. And I was humbled by the dedication of the rangers who protect the unique population of desert rhino from poachers.”
