Points to Note :

Please do note that the below points are shared with you for your reference only. Please use them at your own discretion.

Your Health: It is your (Traveller’s) responsibility is to ensure that you are in good health and medically fit to undertake safari tour. If the tour passes through the malaria area, precautionary treatment is advised. Consultation with medical practitioner/doctor and obtaining prophylactic and precautionary anti-malaria treatment is necessary.

Local Currency: Euro or US can easily be changed upon arrival in Namibia. Both Namibian dollars and South African Rand are equal in value and SA Rand are accepted as legal tender anywhere in Namibia. When departing Namibia we recommend that any cash you take with you is in South African Rand as Namibian dollars are generally not easily exchanged outside of Namibia.

Visa and Master Card are usually accepted throughout southern Africa, but American Express and Diners Club are not as widely accepted. Most foreign hard currencies (US$, ZAR and CHF) are the most commonly accepted and can be exchanged at bureaus de change and banks.

VAT – 15 % VAT is included on all items and VAT paid on items being exported can be reclaimed at the International Airport on departure (if the total value exceeds N$ 200).

Helpful items for your packing list:

  • Clothes (including Spring/Autumn jacket for cooler evenings, especially during months of May-August, when temperature can drop near zero degrees at night)
  • Comfortable shoes (including hiking shoes)
  • Sun glasses
  • Sun-screen lotion
  • Binoculars
  • Camera
  • Personal medicaments with proper prescription
  • Sun hat
  • Torch or Headlamp

Photography: Due to nature of the safari tour, rugged terrain and extremely dusty conditions, we would like to urge to carefully pack all sensitive photographic, electronic and filming equipment, preferably in the dust-proof bags.

People: Namibia’s population can be divided into (at least) 11 ethnic groups, the biggest group of which is the Owambo people. … Most people prefer to think of themselves as Namibians. Himba People. The Himba are a tribe of nomadic pastoralists who inhabit the Kaokoland area of Namibia.

As a whole, Namibians are incredibly friendly, the country’s infrastructure is good, and the level of corruption found here is far less than neighbouring countries. It is, overwhelmingly, a peaceful and welcoming country.

Climate: Namibia has one of the loveliest climates in the world and its fine to visit all year round. Dry, sunny and pleasant most of the year, Namibia provides excellent opportunity to travel without worrying about the weather. Climate is classified as sub-tropical.

Country receives only a fraction of the rain experienced by countries further east or North Africa. Between about mid-November to March some days will be humid and rain may follow, often in localized afternoon thunderstorms.

April and especially May are often lovely months in Namibia. Increasingly dry, with a real freshness in the air, and much greenery in the landscape; at this time the air is clear and largely free from dust. From June to August Namibia cools down and dries out more; nights can become cold, dropping below freezing in some desert areas. As the landscape dries so the game in the north of the country gravitates more to waterholes, and is more easily seen by visitors at the national parks and nature sanctuaries. By September and October it warms up again; game-viewing in most areas is at its best, although there’s often a lot of dust around and the vegetation has lost its vibrancy.

November is a highly variable month. Sometimes the hot, dry weather will continue, at other times the sky will fill with clouds and threaten to rain, but if you’re lucky enough to witness the first rains of the season, you’ll never forget the drama.

Safety and Security:

Nambia is a very safe, politically stable country. In our opinion, visitors have little cause for concern regarding personal safety. This is especially so when traveling on an organized trip and staying at lodges and camps.

Staying safe on Wildlife Viewing Activities:

Your safari guide will ensure your safety at all times – listen carefully to instructions and follow the park’s rules at all times. When on a self-drive safari, don’t drive too close to wildlife and only leave your car in designated areas where it is safe to do so.

Staying safe in Cities and Towns:

Namibian cities are relatively safe; most crime issues are minor, such as petty theft and pickpocketing. You will mostly be sheltered from these risks when looked after by your guide on an organized tour. When venturing out in the city unguided, you can easily reduce being at risk by following simple safety precautions: get advice at your hotel before taking a walk in the city; don’t carry any valuables and only take limited money with you; don’t walk after dark, rather take a taxi.
