    • Looking for someone to drive from Windhoek (or Swakopmond) to Opuwo - September

      Windhoek Aug 22, 2009 at 12:11 PM

      I will be traveling solo in Namibia in September, 2009. I need to drive to Opuwo from either Windhoek or Swakopmond. I am a little flexible with my dates, but ideally I would like to leave on September 10th or 11th and must be back in Windhoek by Sept. 20th. I'm a writer in need of information and a safe traveling companion. I know Africa. I lived in South Africa in the late 90s and have driven extensively through Namibia. I just don't want to do it alone now.

      (p.s. - I'm not a kid... woman in my 40s and purely looking for someone to share gas and provide a 'safety in numbers element)

    • Cape Town to Windhoek: Your thoughts?

      Windhoek Mar 21, 2008 at 1:07 PM

      Hi all,

      I'm planning to do a self-drive trip from Cape Town to Victoria Falls in June and I have most of it worked out. However, I'm still on the fence about the first eight days of the trip. Below are two itineraries between Cape Town and Windhoek: Can you tell me which one would be preferable? (I don't mind driving, so the longer drive in itinerary #1 isn't a major issue to me.) Itinerary #2 costs about US$300 more (the car is only slightly cheaper; the CPT-WDH flight is about175 per person.)

      Itinerary #1

      Day 1: Arrive Cape Town 11AM. Table Mountain
      Day 2: Robben Island, V&A Waterfront
      Day 3: Daytrippers Tour to Cape Point
      Day 4: Wandering around Cape Town
      Day 5: Drive to Springbok, SA
      Day 6: Drive to Fish River Canyon
      Day 7: Fish River Canyon
      Day 8: Drive to Sossusvlei

      Itinerary #2

      Days 1-4 as above.
      Day 5-6: More Cape Town wandering (maybe a Great White breaching tour and/or a visit to the townships?)
      Day 7: Fly to Windhoek
      Day 8: Drive to Sossusvlei

      Any information would be useful!

      best way to phone?

      Hello, I have yet another question concerning my daughter's trip to Namibia. What's the best way to phone home to Germany from Namibia? Does anybody know, if a cell phone(text message) works? However, I suppose it would be very expensive. Can you buy a phone card to use at a public phone? Or are there internet cafés to send e-mails? I suppose that's a typical "mother's question" but I would like to get in touch with her from time to time. Thanks for any reply. Christine

      What kind of currency to bring?

      Windhoek Feb 7, 2004 at 5:47 AM

      Hi, my daughter will be flying to Windhoek at the end of February. The bank told us only 500 Namibia Dollar can be brought into the country. Could anybody tell us if traveller cheques are a good alternative? Better in Euro or better in US? Are there ATMs that accept VISA? My daughter will be staying for about 7 weeks, first doing voluntary work at an orphanage, then driving up to Etosha, so she'll need some money. Thank you very much for your help. Christine
