Getting Around

You can use the minibus to get around. It is used mostly in Africa. Rental cars are popular among tourists. But the tires wear down pretty quickly due to the roads in Namibia.

Fuel is also a thing to worry about because the country sometimes suffers from fuel deficit.


The official language of the nation is English. It is used by the majority of the people. It can be a little difficult to understand, but it will be enough to help you communicate with them.

There are many ethnic groups that have led to numerous indigenous languages like Nama, Silozi, San, Oshiwambo. German is also used in some parts.


1 USD equals 14 Namibian Dollars. You can use the banks to convert currency. They do not charge any extra money for converting it. ATMs in malls can be used to withdraw money.

Namibia is an inexpensive place to travel to and the hotels will offer you efficient service at an affordable price.
