The People's Friend Special - - KNITTING 51 -

• Namibia is about three times the size of the UK, so ex­pect long drives to see all the at­trac­tions. This is a peace­ful coun­try, with high stan­dards of ac­com­mo­da­tion and cleanliness.

• The best time to visit is May to Septem­ber. Ex­pect low hu­mid­ity and pleas­ant tem­per­a­tures, but pack warm clothes for evenings and early morn­ing sa­faris.

• Sun­cream, mos­quito re­pel­lent and malaria tablets are ad­vised.

• Strict rules are in place if trav­el­ling with chil­dren. Each child must travel with a full birth cer­tifi­cate, even if ac­com­pa­nied by both par­ents. If with one or no par­ent, an af­fi­davit is re­quired from par­ent(s) not trav­el­ling, giv­ing per­mis­sion for the child to travel. Find out more at www. namib­i­ahc.org.uk.
