Kramesdorf and Riverside residents say camels are becoming a menace

Residents of Swakopmund’s Riverside and Kramersdorf suburbs say a local tour operator’s camels are becoming an increasing menace. The animals step on gardens, eat away the local natural greenery, are walking the streets and their urine also leaves a stench.

“The camels were nice to have in the beginning, but we understood they are numbering 25 at the moment and not all are used for tourism and are left to roam the area. We don’t want to deny any person the right to run a tourism business, but we need the owner to keep the animals under control”, said one resident to Namib Times.
