Health & Safety In Namibia

Please consult your personal physician and/or a travel clinic preferably 6 weeks prior to your departure. Vaccine requirements vary based on your country of origin and your travel itinerary and your previous vaccination history. It is best to consult with your physician or the CDC website for guidelines.

Important vaccinations to consider and which may either be required or recommended are: Yellow Fever, Typhoid, Hepatitis A & B and Cholera, among others. Please always carry your “International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP)” (or “Yellow Card”) with you.

Malaria:

We advise that you consult a medical practitioner at least six weeks prior to travel. Malaria is present in some areas of Namibia, though most of the country is considered low risk. If you are traveling to a region of Namibia where malaria is present, it is strongly advisable to take malaria prophylactics before, during and after your visit. Please consult a medical professional regarding which prophylactics will be suitable for you.

In addition to the recommendations of your travel clinic or physician, you may also consider the following proactive preventative measures:

1. Apply insect repellent to exposed skin. Recommended repellents contain 20-35% DEET but it is a very virulent repellent, and should be used cautiously.

2. Wear long-sleeved clothing and long pants at dawn and dusk

3. Use a mosquito net if your tent or room isn’t screened or air-conditioned; and spray insecticide or burn a mosquito coil before going to bed.

You can also visit www.malaria.org.za for more information.

Yellow Fever:

There is no risk of Yellow Fever in Namibia; however, vaccination is required for travellers who are arriving from, or have transited through, countries with risk of Yellow Fever transmission (e.g. Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda or elsewhere worldwide). This requirement can change unexpectedly, therefore, we recommend carrying a Yellow Fever card with you at all times.

Insurance:

It is a condition of booking that you carry the correct comprehensive travel and medical insurance to cover yourself, as well as any dependents/travelling companions for the duration of your trip. This insurance should include cover in respect of, but not limited to, the following eventualities:

Compulsory Insurance:

a. Emergency evacuation expenses

b. Medical expenses

c. Repatriation expenses


Recommended Insurance:

a. Cancellation or curtailment of trip

b. Damage/theft/loss of personal luggage, money and goods


Communication:

Namibia country code: +264


Calling Overseas From Namibia:

From a landline dial 00 followed by the country code plus area code and number.
