A Guide to Getting to Namibia
Namibia is a South African country that has a vast array of natural attractions that will delight visitors of all ages and backgrounds. It is rich in history, culture and attractions, and visitors who come here from all over the world are amazed and find joy in the people, the language, the way of life and the many sightseeing delights found in Namibia

Visitors to the country may stay for a maximum period of three months. Citizens from most countries do not require a visa to enter. Such countries include Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Malaysia, Russia, Singapore, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, the United States and many others. Please consult the embassy or relevant websites for the full list of such countries. Visitors who are from countries that are not on this list will need to apply for a visa before they head over to Namibia. They can get this visa from the Namibian embassy or consulate in their countries.

By Plane - Most visitors reach Namibia by plane. Namibia's main airport is the Hosea Kutako International Airport, which is where most airplanes landing in Namibia will touch down. This airport is located just about an hour away from the popular South African city of Windhoek. This airport serves Air Namibia, which is the national carrier. Visitors from countries such as Frankfurt, London, Cape Town, Victoria Falls and Johannesburg will be able to get direct flights to this airport. There are also a wide variety of South African budget airlines that can be found at this airport. Such airlines have been growing in popularity in recent years, and offer the option of traveling at much cheaper prices although the service is of a no-frills nature.

By Car - If you are from neighbouring countries such as Angola, Botswana or Zambia, you will also be able to drive to Namibia. You are highly recommended to travel in groups and to avoid traveling alone, especially after nightfall. Although the drive is fairly manageable, it is still a long drive in unfamiliar territory. It is much safer and more convenient to perhaps enter Namibia by other ways.

By Bus - If you are from Cape Town, Victoria Falls, Botswana or Johannesburg, you will find it fairly easy to hop onto a bus that will take you directly to Namibia. This provides a cheaper way of traveling and is also a way that visitors can fully take in the local culture by interacting with the locals.
