USEFUL INFORMATION

Health and Vaccinations 

There are no mandatory immunisations for travellers to Namibia though you should be up-to-date with Typhoid, Tetanus, Polio and Hepatitis A. Malaria is present in most  parts of Namibia so we recommend you seek advice from your local GP or travel centre as to the correct immunisations and preventative treatments. 

Currency 

In Namibia, the currency is the Namibian Dollar. Please note that the South African Rand is also widely accepted as the Namibian Dollar is pegged to the Rand at the same exchange rate. Please note that changing Namibian Dollars outside of Namibia is almost impossible so try not to exchange too much. 

To check out the latest exchange rate for the places that you are visiting you can go to www.oanda.com

Cultural Sensitivity 

On our tours you will frequently interact with local people, each with their own distinct customs and traditions. We therefore ask you to be considerate and to treat them with respect. Your tour-leaders and guides will always be able to advise you accordingly.  

Language & Religion 

English is the official language, but Namibia’s relatively small population is extraordinarily diverse in language and culture. More than 11 languages are indigenous to Namibia but with its cosmopolitan society a number of languages from around the world are spoken in Namibia. People commonly speak two or three languages and more than 50% of the population speaks Oshiwambo. Due to the country’s colonial history Afrikaans, the language of the previous South African occupiers, is still widely spoken and functions as the lingua franca in Namibia. Namibia has two small groups of nomadic groups; the Khoisan speaking people, known as the Bushmen or San and the Ovahimba people, figuratively known as the red people. 

The constitution of Namibia allows for freedom on religion and the country is a secular state. 

It is thought that around 90% of Namibian's are Christian, and a surprisingly large number actively practice their religion with regular church attendance. The largest Christian group is the Lutheran Church which grew out of the work of the Finnish Evangelical Lutheran Mission. Next largest are Roman Catholics, while most other Christian denominations can also be found. 

Time 

Namibia is 2 hours ahead of GMT. 

A useful website to check the time zone differences is www.worldtimezone.com.  

Food and drink 

Namibian Food is a blend of traditional German influence mixed with the South African delicacies. The common food in Namibia are game dishes with the popular ones being kudu meat, springbok and gemsbok. 

The national drink of Namibia is the Tafel lager and Windhoek lager. 

Although Namibia is a meat-orientated society and many menu options will feature steaks from one animal or another, vegetarians are readily catered for and all of the lodges and camps provide a good standard of food.
