French tourist found dead had severe liver damage

Staff Reporter


THE French tourist whose lifeless body was found in the Deadvlei less than 24 hours after he was reported missing, suffered from severe liver cirrhosis.


This was indicated in the results of the post mortem examination.


The 54-year-old Nicolas Remondiere was part of a group of six tourists who hiked up the Big Daddy Dune in the Sossusvlei area on 11 November.

The Frenchman did not meet up with the group afterwards as arranged and was reported missing. Around 10:00 the next day his body was found.


According to Delphine Ilunga, owner of Furaha Tours and Safaris who arranged the tour in collaboration with a French travel agency, Remondiere showed no signs of bad health.


“He signed all the required indemnity forms and did not disclose any medical issues,” Ilunga said.


“This was his first visit to Namibia but not the first to Africa. In 2018 he did a strenuous hike in Ethiopia so the heat and extreme conditions were not new to him.”


Remondiere was single and had no children, Ilunga said.


“His remains will be flown to his home country as soon as the administrative work is finalised. We feel so sorry that this had to happen to him.”
