Do I need a visa to travel to Namibia?
To travel to Namibia, you will need a tourist visa, which can be obtained at your port of entry, and a passport valid for at least 6 months.
Is tipping customary in Namibia?
You can tip 10% at restaurants for exceptional service, but it is by no means an expectation. You should tip your guides around $10+. There is not a very well established service industry here, but tips are always appreciated.
What is internet access like in Namibia?
The Adventure Life tours of Namibia tend to be in the more isolated areas of the country where the already-scarce internet is even less common. You should not expect to connect other than temporary periods of time in airports, nicer hotels, or restaurants (but even then it is not a guarantee).
Can I use my cell phone while in Namibia?
You can purchase a local SIM chip for your phone at the airport upon arrival, but it might not serve you much since many of our tours are safaris that go into pretty isolated parts of the country where there will not be a signal.
Do I need power adapters?
Namibia has Type D power sockets and 220-240v power, so if you have a 110v device that is not compatible with other voltages, you will not only require a plug adapter but also a step-down converter.
What are the toilets like in Namibia?
Even though much of Namibia has squat toilets, you will find that the lodges and camps that we have chosen do offer comfortable western style bowl toilets. Don't flush toilet paper, instead toss it in the garbage by the toilet.
Can I drink the water in Namibia?
Do not drink the tap water in Namibia - instead fill your bottles with the filtered water or drink the bottled water that your tour operator provides.
Are credit cards accepted in Namibia? Will I be able to find ATMs?
You probably won't be able to find too many ATMs or credit-card-accepting businesses on your Namibia expedition, but since the tour is all-inclusive you only really need cash for any souvenirs or tips, which you can easily take out when you get to the airport.
Should I purchase travel insurance?
You should definitely purchase travel insurance, and we make it easy through TravelGuard on our Once You're Booked
