Population and Politics

The country of greatness and space. Namibia gets its name from a desert on the Namibian cost, the desert of Namib. Before independence, the country was called South-West- Africa and it was a province of South-Africa. Because of the geographical importance of the desert, Namibia is very little populated. With only 2,1 million inhabitants for a total surface of 824116 km2. So there is a lot of space left for nature.

Weather

Namibia is known for its hot and dry weather. On the other hand there are important contrasts regarding its location. During the months of summer temperatures are over 30°. During the southern winter, they can descend to minus 6 degrees, especially during the night. Difference between day and night is a lot more important in Namibia than in Europe. So a good fleece or jacket is necessary in your luggage. The coastal weather is influenced by Bengal. Same during summer, you can have mist and sometimes cold temperatures. The weather in the Caprivi band is completely different. Humidity is a lot more important as well as the possibility of rains.

Langues

Different African languages as Bantu and Khoisan are spoken even though English is the official language. Following the German colonization, there are even more Namibian who speak German. And of course, Afrikaans is also spoken.

Currency and payment

Currency of the country is the Namibian Dollar which is indexed on the South African Rand. You can also pay with the South African Rand, but you will get change in Namibian dollars. Payment by credit card is very common.

Health

The majority of the country is safe from Malaria. On the other hand, be careful in the Caprivi band. We advise you to discuss a possible prevention treatment with your doctor before departure. The health network is excellent in Namibia with over 40 doctors for 10 000 inhabitants.

Road network

The road network is well developed in Namibia and spreads over 45000 Km. However, 80% of these routes are non-tarred. For the most part these are “dirt roads” or “gravel tracks”. It’s important to understand that you can’t drive on these routes the same way as in a tarred route. Maximum speed is 90 KM/h and we advise a lot of caution to avoid accidents.
