'Where wild s***hole animals can roam freely': Namibia mocks Trump in spoof video


Namibia has unleashed the perfect video response to US President Donald Trump's comments on "s***thole" African countries.

After US President Donald Trump's alleged remarks that African countries are s***holes, a game reserve in Namibia has made a tongue-in-cheek video promoting the country.

The video by the Gondwana Collection Namibia - which runs several game reserves in the southern African nation - intersperses images of great beauty with a Trump-like voice-over.

"We would like to invite you to come to s***hole Namibia, one of the most beautiful s***hole countries out there," the faux-Trump voice-over says.

"Actually Namibia is such a s***hole country that we converted about 42 per cent of it into various conservation areas, where wild s***hole animals can roam freely," it continues, with stunning footage of ostriches and elephants.

"Not only is our country a s***hole place," the narrator continues, "even our elephants are highly qualified to dump large amounts of s*** everywhere."

The video shows sweeping desert dunes, starry skies and tourists enjoying a sunset beer overlooking the game reserve.

The video, posted on YouTube and the game reserve's social media feeds, had received hundreds of thousands of views on Facebook by Wednesday.

"You're more than welcome to visit Africa's number one s***hole country, known to your president as Nambia," it ends, in reference to another Trump gaffe.

In September the US leader wrongly referred to Namibia as Nambia, at a lunch with African leaders, causing much mirth on that country's social media platforms.

His most recent remarks last week, which he has denied, were regarding a discussion about migrants to the US. The president reportedly said he would prefer immigrants from Norway to those from "s***hole countries" in Africa, as well as Haiti, El Salvador.
