TIPS FOR TRAVELING NAMIBIA

CURRENCY   Namibian Dollar (NAD) is the local currency and is linked with the South African Rand which is also widely accepted. Euro is accepted, as is the US Dollar. Most major hotels, restaurants and shops in towns and cities will accept credit cards.

CLIMATE   With 300 days of sunshine on average per year, Namibia is truly a sunny place. Summer is from October to April and temperatures can reach 40 degrees Celsius (104º Fahernheit) which fall at night to cool levels. Winter months are cooler with temperatures dropping to down to 10° C

WHAT TO PACK   If your safari is in winter, you will need a thick fleece or jacket for those early morning and evening game drives. You may want to consider gloves and a beanie too. Summer can be exceedingly hot so pack shorts, t-shirts and if you burn easily, a long sleeve shirt. Loose, light weight earth coloured clothing is your best option. Smart casual clothes for evening dining. Take sunscreen, a hat and comfortable footwear. Mosquito protection is necessary and don’t forget your costume as many lodges have pools.

PEAK HOLIDAY SEASON   The cooler winter months of May – September is generally the best time to come visit. Animal activity is more prevalent and the day time temperatures more bearable.
