"No real danger in Namibia,..." Namibia Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Tahiti_Bob

Namibia Warnings and Dangers: 49 reviews and 59 photos

No real danger in Namibia, just a few issues to keep in mind:
Wild animals are real; foolhardy tourists are killed by lions or elephants almost every year.
Some trouble possible with angolan rebels or armed bandits in the North-West.
Beware of thieves in the big cities. Everyone looks friendly and almost all are, just be aware...
No serious health problem. Actually you can drink water from the tap almost everywhere, even in the campgrounds. Low malaria risk in Epupa Falls.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
