Hosea Kutako International Airport on the outskirts of Windhoek is the main aviation gateway to Namibia and has flight connections to limited destinations across Africa, Europe, and the Middle. Charter and scheduled domestic flights are available to major towns and cities throughout the country, although many destinations are within a few hours’ drive of the capital.
Passport holders of all nationalities can currently enter Namibia visa-free for stays of up to three months. That being said, you do need a passport that is valid for at least six months and with at least two free pages for stamps.
English is the official language in Namibia but is only spoken at home by around 3% of the population. More common are Oshiwambo (the native language of the Ovambo people) and Afrikaans, which is spoken by the majority of Namibia’s white population.
The Namibian Dollar is the official currency used in Namibia, with 1 USD equalling around 18 Namibian Dollars at the time of writing. USD, Euros, and UK pounds can easily be exchanged within the country and South African Rands are readily accepted at lodges, camps, and tourist restaurants. You can easily withdraw Namibian Dollars at ATMs and major international credit and debit cards are accepted at most tourist businesses.
The tap water in Namibia is usually safe to drink but the chlorinated taste means that many travelers prefer to drink purified or bottled water. You’ll find bottled mineral water at most shops and supermarkets, as well as at camps and lodges.
There are no compulsory vaccinations required to enter Namibia, although it’s recommended that you are protected against Hepatitis A, Diptheria, and Tetanus. You may also want to discuss with your health provider regarding vaccinations against Hepatitis B, Rabies, and Typhoid. Proof of a yellow fever vaccination is required if you are coming from or have transited through some parts of Africa and South America.
There is a risk of malaria in certain parts of Namibia throughout the year, with the highest incidences from November to June. If you’re visiting the Caprivi Strip, Kavango, or the Kunene River regions, it’s recommended that you take prescription medicine to prevent malaria.
Namibia uses Type D (three round pins in a triangular pattern) plugs and operates on a 230V supply voltage and 50Hz.
Casual, comfortable garments that are quick drying are a staple of safari travel, with neutral colors such as beige, khaki, or green helping you to blend in with the natural environment. Always pack a couple of long sleeves shirts and long pants that will guard against mosquito bites at night.
Don’t forget to pack a sweater for the chilly early mornings and evenings, plus a lightweight waterproof jacket. Walking shoes with good grip and flip flops/sandals for getting around the camp are the only footwear you’ll need!
In terms of accessories, pack a broad-rimmed hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen, as well as insect repellant and any prescription medication to might need. A pair of binoculars may also come in useful and most guests opt to bring a high-quality camera to document their experiences.
Most importantly, don’t forget your passport and any vaccination records you need, as well as documentation of a comprehensive travel insurance policy.
All of our private tours are custom-designed, including family safaris. Depending on your interests and preferred destinations, we can tailor an itinerary to suit. The minimum age requirement for children differs depending on the places you want to visit and the activities you want to participate in.
On all of our custom safaris and private tours, we do our best to accommodate dietary restrictions, provided we have prior knowledge. That being said, in some remote areas, particular ingredients may be difficult to find and suitable alternatives will be sought.
Our accommodation options range from basic camping to glamping at upmarket safari camps, as well as family-focused resorts and high-end lodges. In some destinations, we can also create itineraries staying at private villas, complete with in-house staff. Glamping tents are among the most popular of our accommodation options as they immerse you in the wilderness environment while keeping bugs and wildlife out.
