      Namibia Apr 8, 2014 at 7:52 AM

      I would like to know your, guys, personal opinion about taking antimalarial drugs while visiting the area Kvango / Okavango this month. I am accustomed with CDC and WHO rules, but I have some medical contradiction to take that kind of medicines so I am a bit anxious. Both are risky for me.
      The second question is about as good as possible repellent avaible in Namibia. There in Poland the efficient repellents are out of reach. Any recommendation?

      I'm going to Namibia in the end of December and look for a safari company. My preferences are animals, nature and activities as riding and bush walking. I'm not interested in playground places like Swakopmund and does not like to travel in large groups. I'm on budget and look for an inexpensive camping safari. Can anyone suggest a good and affordable safari company?

      Safari Driving in namibia and doing the Caprivi strip

      Namibia Jun 17, 2013 at 1:13 PM

      We are considering a self drive safari in Namibia in September and have thought of driving from Windhoek and finishing in Kasane in Botswana, I know the rental companies will charge a one fee but I wondered if anyone has done this trip and what the roads are like to the North along Caprivi. Also are there any major issues crossing the borders into Botswana and Zambia. I would love to hear from someone who has done this trip or if anyone knows of a books or video on the subject of travelling in that particular area.

      Car rental in Namibia

      We are planning a trip to do a self drive safari in namibia and we hope to start in Windhoek and finish in Kasane (botswana), does anyone have any experience of doing this sort of trip and I amparticularly interested in experience of rental companies as i have heard some bad stories about their practises in charging for damage to vehicles, also concerned that one ways may be expensive with some of them. I am also interested in experience of Africa flight passes and how they work as I also plan to go to either mauritius or the Seychelles for a fort night afterwards. Any suggestions on any of this will be very useful, the schedule is likely to be summer 2014 so a bit away but we are planning at this stage.

    • Where in: Etosha, Damaraland and Sossusvlei

      Namibia Mar 11, 2013 at 9:53 AM

      Hi,

      I was wondering if anyone out there has any strong opinions on favourite campsites in Etosha? We want to enter in the western section of the park and exit in the east. We are thinking 2 different sites over the 3 days.

      Also, we are spending 3 days in Damaraland and are planing on basing ourselves at the Hoada campsite. Is this a good area of which to base yourself?

      Lastly, we are planning on spending 2 nights at the Sossus Oasis Campsite in and around Sossusvlei, is this a good site to base yourself? I've also heard great things about Sesriem. would it be better to choose that campsite?

      Thanks in advance for all the help,

      Jeremy

      Namibia and Victoria falls area in 28 day. Via JNB or not ?

      Namibia Feb 24, 2013 at 6:14 AM

      My wife and I are going to visit Namibia and Victorea Fall area for 28 days during mide June to mide July and would like to get your opinion in selecting between the following options.

      First something about ourself; we take our time during traveling. We love watching animals, nature, different local cultures, local schools (my wife is a teacher of special education) etc.; as we are keen in photography, we are traveling slower than many other travelers.

      I traveled in Namibia 4 years ago covering Windhoek, Sesriem, (little sossus lodge) Swakomund, Cape cross; skeleton coast, Damaraland; Palmwag lodge; Kaokland; Camp Aussicht, Opuwo, Epupa falls, Ermo and Etosha in 23 days, we did it with a 2x2 (Corola) and it was fine.

      I didn't drive manual transmission for many years and my capability in driving in tough roads is minimal

      Our basic itinerary is : Swakomund, Cape cross, North to the The Himba and Herero ; A private farm or two, Etosha, Victoria Falls (Zambezi cruise, Livingstone Island Chobe trip perhaps both Zim and Zam sides, maybe Mukuni Big Five Safaris) all this in approx. 28 days.(south Namibia is not desired now)

      We start from Johannesburg; so we see two main options:

      Option one:

      Fly JNB to WDH, rent a car at WDH (as we did last visit) do all the tour till Caprivi, return the car; find a way to ride to Victoria; visit the area and fly from Victoria to JNB and home

      Option two: Rent a car at JNB; drive to Namibia (while visiting few interesting places on the way 3-4 days), do all the Namibia tour, drive to VF (via Bots and Zimb); visit the area and drive to JNB in 3-5 days in one of the two options:

      1. Via Botswana (e.g. drive to Maun and arrange a local tour in the Okavanga Delta) Or
      2. via Zimbabwe (e.g.via Antelope park or Hwange/Matopos perhaps using local tour).

      We would like to get your opinion about the options.

      If we rent the car in JNB we have to cross many boarders with the car (to Bots and to Namibia and to Bots, and to Zimb and to Bots again and to SA)

      How complicated and expensive is all those borders crossing with a rented car?

      In case you recommend this option, shall we select Bots or Zimb as main way south to JNB ? (I saw some post below with favore on Zimb)

      Can all this be done with 2x2? (For the long drives; 2x2 is more comfortable and for 4 weeks it can be 1500-2000 USD difference with respect to 4x4.

      Thank you in advance for your advice.

      Hi, I'm invited to make my leave at Swakopmund because there leave friends of my parents. Now I have read about the seal hunt and barbaric slaughter at this country. Asking the familiy they denied that and saying it is totally blowed up by international press. So my question is, is it true or not and if yes, is it ongoing? If I google for that I get tears in my eyes and if it's still true I think I do not want to go there. Please let me know. Thank you very much in advance. Best regards, Peter
