I live in South Africa and have a FEDHEALTH hospital plan and i want to know if it is valid in NAMIBIA.
I will be traveling solo in Namibia in September, 2009. I need to drive to Opuwo from either Windhoek or Swakopmond. I am a little flexible with my dates, but ideally I would like to leave on September 10th or 11th and must be back in Windhoek by Sept. 20th. I'm a writer in need of information and a safe traveling companion. I know Africa. I lived in South Africa in the late 90s and have driven extensively through Namibia. I just don't want to do it alone now.
(p.s. - I'm not a kid... woman in my 40s and purely looking for someone to share gas and provide a 'safety in numbers element)
Im going to be in Windhoek for one night before I embark on a volunteer placement and it sounds like Joe's Beerhouse is the place to go in the evening. I'm a girl travelling alone so wanted to know if its the sort of place I can go on my own? Or will I stick out like a sore thumb??
I'm planning to do a self-drive trip from Cape Town to Victoria Falls in June and I have most of it worked out. However, I'm still on the fence about the first eight days of the trip. Below are two itineraries between Cape Town and Windhoek: Can you tell me which one would be preferable? (I don't mind driving, so the longer drive in itinerary #1 isn't a major issue to me.) Itinerary #2 costs about US$300 more (the car is only slightly cheaper; the CPT-WDH flight is about175 per person.)
Day 1: Arrive Cape Town 11AM. Table Mountain
Day 2: Robben Island, V&A Waterfront
Day 3: Daytrippers Tour to Cape Point
Day 4: Wandering around Cape Town
Day 5: Drive to Springbok, SA
Day 6: Drive to Fish River Canyon
Day 7: Fish River Canyon
Day 8: Drive to Sossusvlei
Days 1-4 as above.
Day 5-6: More Cape Town wandering (maybe a Great White breaching tour and/or a visit to the townships?)
Day 7: Fly to Windhoek
Day 8: Drive to Sossusvlei
Any information would be useful!

I have just returned from Windhoek to my home in the US (Naples, FL). My email is: [email]. I saw some watercolors done by Kerstin Geier in our guesthouse: The Hilltop House. I want to contact Kerstin because I would like to have one of her watercolors -- particularly of oryx. I hope she will see this or someone will help us connect with one another. I loved being in Namibia -- a vibrant country. Please let me know how to be in touch with K. Geier. Thanks. D. Vannoy
Hello, I want to thank everybody who gave me information concerning my daughter's trip to Namibia.It really helped.My daughter is back in Germany now. She had a very interesting time in Namibia. The first part of her stay was working in schools and an orphanage, then before flying back she went to Etosha, just as a tourist, a wonderful experience. So, thanks again. Christine
Hello, I have yet another question concerning my daughter's trip to Namibia. What's the best way to phone home to Germany from Namibia? Does anybody know, if a cell phone(text message) works? However, I suppose it would be very expensive. Can you buy a phone card to use at a public phone? Or are there internet cafés to send e-mails? I suppose that's a typical "mother's question" but I would like to get in touch with her from time to time. Thanks for any reply. Christine
Hi, my daughter will be flying to Windhoek at the end of February. The bank told us only 500 Namibia Dollar can be brought into the country. Could anybody tell us if traveller cheques are a good alternative? Better in Euro or better in US? Are there ATMs that accept VISA? My daughter will be staying for about 7 weeks, first doing voluntary work at an orphanage, then driving up to Etosha, so she'll need some money. Thank you very much for your help. Christine

Hello! I will have one day to spend in windhoek. I'm not sure if I can goa and disappear from my travelling companion (or with him) because there'll be some people waiting for us. What is the best place of Windhoek to see, in your opinion at daytime? What about the night time - any REALLY spectacular places? It'll be all very spectacular, don't get me wrong, but just something-- really, really the best you love in Windhoek... Regards
