HOW TO USE THIS GUIDE

go! Namibia - - ACCOMMODATION -

Rates. Ac­com­mo­da­tion rates and other prices listed in this guide were cor­rect at the time of go­ing to print. Al­ways call or e-mail to check cur­rent rates. When you book ac­com­mo­da­tion, make sure to men­tion that you’re South African – SADC res­i­dents of­ten get a dis­count. Also en­quire about dis­counts for chil­dren and off-peak rates. Money. We list prices in rand – the rand is equal to the Namib­ian dollar, and you can use rand any­where. As a pre­cau­tion, travel with a va­ri­ety of debit and credit cards, such as MasterCard, Visa and Mae­stro, as some ATMs and pay points don’t ac­cept cer­tain cards. Tele­phone num­bers. If you are call­ing from South Africa, re­mem­ber to add 00 264 be­fore ev­ery num­ber to ac­cess the in­ter­na­tional di­alling code for Namibia. Our num­bers are al­ready listed in this way. Keep in mind that some num­bers are those of farm­ers – it’s best to call them in the early evening (and re­mem­ber to ask whether they’ve had rain…) Web­sites. Some web­sites re­quire the “www” in or­der to work, oth­ers don’t. GPS way­points. We use the dec­i­mal de­gree for­mat in this guide. We checked the way­points us­ing Google Earth and there may be small dis­crep­an­cies. If you have a GPS, use Track­s4Africa’s soft­ware.

Guides and maps. This guide is best used in con­junc­tion with other qual­ity guides and maps. We rec­om­mend the Track­s4Africa GPS Namibia map and guide ( track­s4africa.co.za). If you want to ex­plore Da­ma­r­a­land or Kaokoland in your 4x4, buy an in-depth guide from Jo­han Sny­man ( jo­hans@iway.na). We also sell a durable map of Namibia – R125 from winkel.weg.co.za (Afrikaans ver­sion only).
