Namibia Local Customs: 35 reviews and 49 photos

It is a custom, in a land with so little people, in a land where you can drive a hole day without seeing another car or people, to wave if you find someone in your way.

Tuhafeni (our great driver) did wave every single man or woman or car we find in our way and always he did have a wave back.

I love to wave, so from the beginning, before even I did notice this was a custom, I did wave all the people we saw from our bus. Waving I get to know the beautiful Steffney and other children and other people that always did wave back with a big smile.

So, remember, if you go to Namibia, do wave in your way.
