Seasons: April to October is Namibia’s dry season, while the main rainy season span from January to March. Game viewing during the rainy season is more difficult as the vegetation thickens and water is still readily available which means wildlife are not forced to congregate around seasonal waterholes. Visitors for whom wildlife viewing is not important will enjoy visiting Namibia at any time of year, although self drive is difficult during the rainy season due to the condition of the gravel roads. Currency: Namibian dollar although South African rands are readily accepted. Visa: American citizens are not required to obtain a visa to enter Namibia for tourism purposes provided their stay is under 90 days Language: English, Afrikaans and German Driving: Distances in Namibia are vast. With the road network being predominantly gravel, it is advisable to hire a four-wheel drive vehicle with good insurance cover as the terrain can be quite difficult. Recommend self drive travelers carry plenty of water, spare gas and be prepared to drive hours without seeing any sign of civilization.
