Namibia is accessible through its capital, Windhoek, with Hosea Kutako International Airport serving as the primary gateway. Major airlines offer international flights, connecting Namibia to destinations worldwide. Domestic flights and road transfers are commonly used for reaching different regions within the country.



Most visitors to Namibia do not require a visa for short stays, but it's essential to check the specific visa requirements based on your nationality. A valid passport and proof of accommodation are typically required for entry.

Finally, Namibia invites travellers to explore on a journey through its diverse landscapes and cultural tapestry. From the mesmerising dunes to the wildlife-rich plains, Namibia Safari promises an adventure that resonates with those seeking the extraordinary in both nature and culture.



The currency of Namibia is The Namibian Dollar (NAD; symbol N$) is in note denominations of N$200, 100, 50, 20 and 10. Coins are in denominations of N$5, N$1, 50 cents, 10 cents and 5 cents. It is linked to the South African Rand (R) on a 1:1 basis (South African Rand = 100 cents). The South African Rand is also acceptable as currency in Namibia.

The import and export of local currency is limited to N$50,000. The import of foreign currency is unlimited, provided sums equal to or exceeding NAD5,000 are declared on arrival. Export of foreign currency is unlimited up to the amount imported and declared.


Banking hours: Monday - Friday 09h00 to 15h30 and Saturday, 08h30 to 11h00

Banks are found in most towns, with most being closed on Sundays and public holidays. Most of them offer foreign exchange services - with cash, bank and credit cards as well as travelers cheques.

American Express, Diners Club, Mastercard and Visa are accepted. Credit cards are not usually accepted at petrol stations, so bear this in mind when you visit the ATM. Setting aside an emergency petrol cash fund is a good idea if you’re planning to drive.

You can also obtain cash from many of the ATMs. Several international banks have branches in main city centres. Always advise your bank that you are travelling outside of the country as they might block your purchases if they have not been informed.

To avoid additional exchange rate charges, take traveler's cheques in US Dollars or South African Rand. In general, you can expect a better exchange rate for traveler’s cheques than for cash.


Food, Drink and Cuisine Advice

Traditional Namibian cuisine is rarely served and so the food at restaurants tends to be European in style and is, generally, of a very high standard.

Namibia is very meat-orientated, and many menu options will feature steaks from various animals. However, there is usually a vegetarian and seafood section offered by most camps and restaurants.

In the supermarkets you'll find pre-wrapped fresh fruit and vegetables (though the more remote the areas you visit, the smaller your choice), and plenty of canned foods, pasta, rice, bread, etc. Most of this is imported from South Africa.

The water in Namibia's main towns is generally safe to drink, though it may taste a little metallic if it has been piped for miles. Natural sources should usually be purified, though water from underground springs and dry riverbeds seldom causes any problems. However, filtered and bottled water are readily available in most towns and all camps, lodges and hotels.
