Favorite thing: .
Namibia:
Visa: No visa. Free stay for 90 days. Many questions by the border police, and maybe some annoyance at the border if you are backpacking in Namibia.
Mobil phone: Good roaming.
ATM: Many ATM's, but some banks didn't take my visa card. Nedbank did and gives normal rate.
Recommended language: English.
Infrastructure: Good around Windhoek. Poor in Caprivi.
Friendliness by the people: Very friendly in Caprivi region. Windhoek is different where people are mostly taken up with their own business.
Attention by Police/military: No bad experience other than too many harsh questions by the border police.
Crime: Safe in the daytime. Locals say it is more dangerous at night. I had no troubles when I was walking in the streets at nights in Windhoek.
Rainy period:: Very dry country.
Price level: More expensive than average in Windhoek. Caprivo region is cheaper. All tourist activities are very expensive. Prices are set by the Namibian tourist board.
Airport departure tax: N/A.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
