Most widely used currency in Southern Africa is the Rand, which offers visitors great value for money. The rand comes in a range of coins (R1 = 100 cents) and note denominations of R10, R20, R50, R100 and R200. In Namibia, the rand is also widely accepted as the Namibian Dollar is 1=1 equal to Rand. In Zambia the currency is Kwacha and in Zimbabwe is USD. But in all countries the USD is accepted everywhere. We recommend exchanging your home currency to RAND at the time of arrival to Windhoek, have additional USD cash available with you for later should you choose to exchange additional money . Banks are trusted institutions in Namibia, Botswana and Zambia to exchange money. Credit cards are widely accepted in most hotels & Lodges however for gas and other day to day interactions with locals, we highly recommend having cash ( Rand ) available.
In urban areas tap water is usually of high quality and safe to drink. It’s quite safe to have ice in drinks and to eat salads. However, when traveling to remote rural areas and the bush you should take your own drinking water along or buy bottled water.
In Southern Africa ( Namibia, Botswana and Zambia ) electricity supply is 220/230 volts AC 50 HZ. With a few exceptions (in deep rural areas), electricity is available almost everywhere. Be sure to bring the correct adaptor plug, as most countries in Southern Africa has a unique 3 point power outlet.
