by graysky111

I found several company and one of them cheap " Wild Dog and Crazy Fudu "
for 3 day Soussouvlei desert tour for N 2000. But they are full.

I need to go for this 3 day tour from 10 Aug 2006.
Does anybody know a travel agency or tour company for this 3 day Soussouvlei tour from Windhoek? For a reasonable price?

I am in Victoria Falls now. Replies or E-mail to Graysky112@hotmail.com
Any help will be so good. Any tip with this tour.
Thank you.

Have you looked at www.namibweb.com
I found dozens of tour operators, their tour details including many 3 day Sossusvlei tours from around N$2000-$4000. Chameleon have one deaprting on the 9th for around N$2300. Have a look at the website I am sure you'll find something.
Also try this page: www.namibian.org/travel/safaris/budget/3dysoss.htm

Hi

I've checked with Ricma tour operators and they confirmed that everyone is full. The next available 3 day trip is on the 17th.
So your luck doesn't seem to be good on this one. There are alternative trips but these are 7 days and I think most of them are full or are starting later than the 10th. Do you want me to check them out anyway?

Travel Tips for Windhoek

Safari in Okapuka : the lilacbreasted roller

by Bigjones

One of our favourite animals in Namibia, this multicoloured bird is even more impressive and beautiful when it spreads its blue wings. We saw it in the logde's garden but also in Etosha National Parc.

Hiking safari : Hartmann's mountain zebras

by Bigjones

Before going to Namibia, I didn't know there are in fact two kinds of zebras : the Hartmann's mountain zebras living in the mountains and the Burchell’s zebras that have shadow lines between their black stripes.

We saw them from the top of the mountain and went down to see them closer. In fact, they seemed as curious as we were and didn't run away very quickly.

What to pack

by StefanFS

Cotton rather than synthetic clothing is recommended for Namibian summers. This can be bought at shops in Windhoek that specialise in lightweight safari wear. Winters are usually mild to warm, which calls for light clothing in the middle of the day, and a sweater or jacket for evenings and
early mornings when it can become quite cold. It is often cold and windy at the coast, for which warm clothing, including a windbreaker, is necessary. An important item is comfortable walking shoes. Health Precautions :
Due to the hot dry climate Namibia is virtually free of tropical diseases, therefore health certificates are not normally required. However, vaccination requirements change from time to time. We suggest you consult your local doctor or health department.
Malaria exists in the northern area throughout the year, but you can reduce the risk of malaria by using prophylactics, which should be started before arriving in Namibia and with your doctor’s guidance.

If you are on prescription medication, please ensure you have an adequate supply, to last the duration of your stay and a copy of your prescription(s).

The Southern Africa sun is harsh, therefore we advise that you apply highest (SPF '20) sun block liberally prior to going on walks, swimming etc Photographic Equipment
Ensure that you have sufficient film and spare batteries, as these may be difficult to purchase in some areas. A lens hood and ultra violet filter are advisable.
Dust-proof packing of your equipment is strongly recommended.

Important Note: It is courteous to ask permission before photographing people. Please be sensitive. Not all African cultures are familiar with cameras. Rural folk will often shy away from having their picture taken. Some locals may ask a fee for having their photograph taken. It is recommended you avoid photographing anything relating to government and military, including personnel (soldiers and police) and buildings. Swimsuits are required for public beaches or swimming pools. What to Pack
When packing, remember to include binoculars, a sun-hat, sunglasses, sun block, bathing towel, moisturiser, lip-ice and mosquito repellent. Points for electric shavers (electric current 250VAC) are available at major hotels and most state-owned rest camps and resorts. It is advisable to bring battery-operated or conventional razors when visiting remote areas. Camping equipment can be hired in Windhoek.

Rent a car

by georeiser

There are a lot of car rental companies in Windhoek. 4 wheel drive cars are popular, and maybe the best since the roads are so bad in remote areas. Ask around and bargain the price. The best price I found after some hours was:
A small car cost from 750 N$ per day.
A 4-wheel drive car costs from 1300 N$ per day. With camping equipment on the roof add 150 N$ on the price. The minimum rent is 3 days. There are no kasko insurance included in the price. Deposit for a 4-wheel drive car is 29000 N$.

POST STREET MALL

by DAO


The Post Street Mall is a pedestrianized shopping area right in the heart of Windhoek. It contains large retail outlets, a very good Tourist Information Bureau, meteorites on display and up to 82 souvenir traders (pictured). If the traders here don’t sell it – no one does. They have every conceivable souvenir you can think of. The Tourist Information off in the Mall has free maps of Windhoek and can even arrange accommodation outside of the town centre. Unfortunately they are only open M-F.
