  • GEOGRAPHY The Republic of Namibia is a country in Southern Africa. Its western border is the Atlantic Ocean; it shares land borders with Zambia and Angola to the north, Botswana to the east, and South Africa to the south and east.

  • ECONOMY & BUDGET Namibia’s economy is heavily dependent on the earnings generated from primary commodity exports in a few vital sectors, including minerals, especially diamonds, livestock, and fish. It is expensive to travel to Namibia, as the country is very isolated and vast, you will need to rent a 4×4 car.

  • SAFETY Namibia is one of the safest countries in Africa. It’s politically stable and has a low crime rate. The only thing I was concerned about was the vastness of the country and our car potentially breaking down in the desert. I recommend learning how to change a tire and bringing along a satellite phone in case you get stuck! It is also highly recommended that you have Travel Insurance to travel to Namibia.
