HOW THE ACCOMMODATION GUIDE WORKS
Rates. Accommodation rates and other prices listed were correct at the time of going to print. Use these rates as a general guideline and always call or e-mail to check current tariffs. When you book accommodation, be 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 rands – the rand is equal to the Namibian dollar, and you can use rands anywhere.
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 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 you to type “www” into the address bar, others don’t. GPS waypoints. We use the decimal degree format in this guide. Set your GPS to the same format to avoid confusion. We checked the waypoints using Google Earth and there may be small discrepancies.
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).
