Namibia Mini Guide
How do I get to Namibia?
There are plenty of flights from Cape Town and Johannesburg to Namibia landing at Windhoek Airport. Check out which offers the best deals from BA, Air Namibia and South African.
Getting Around Namibia
The distances are big so you may want to take an internal flight with Air Namibia. Windhoek Airport is located centrally so flying to one of the more far flung destinations won’t take long. Driving is popular, despite the distances and the often shortages of fuel. Be warned that the petrol stations only take cash –not cards.
Hotels in Namibia
There are a number of reliable chain hotels in the country of which Protea and Southern Sun are two of the best. Prices begin at around R600 for a night.
Eating out in Namibia
Food in Namibia is very similar to that of South Africa so you should be at home with plenty of meat on offer. Only in Windhoek will you find a selection of international restaurants.
Safety in Namibia
Crime is quite high in the country so sensible precautions should be taken and you should never walk alone at night.
Must See Places in Namibia
- Kolmanskop. A ghost town outside of Luderitz, Kolmanskop is fascinating but slowly being reclaimed by sand dunes.
- Skeleton Coast. Atmospheric, even spooky; take a walk along the coast in the autumn mists and see the wooden and steel ribs of countless shipwrecks appearing from the gloom.
- Fish River Canyon Park. The world’s second largest canyon, the scenery and wildlife are to die for.
- Kaokoland. A little visited but sublime part of the country where you’ll see unusual wildlife as well as dramatic scenery.
