Travel to south africa from namibia

A wild trip to Africa: NAMIBIA (MAF#8)


For getting around we did very well with the Sygic app that we downloaded on our phone. It is free and you can download the maps of the countries you are interested in. It works like a GPS but without consuming data and, once installed on the phone, no internet connection is needed.

This is the route we followed, in case it serves as a guide to prepare yours. In case you have less days, you can do only one part of the trip, for example, only South Africa or Namibia.

If you consider that there are too many kilometers to drive, or too many days, you can adjust it to your interests. Internal flights will save you from doing so many kilometers, but it will also increase your budget a lot and, in our case, the cost of five flights is very noticeable. If you do not have many days it can also be interesting to cut down on travel time and use more internal flights.    In the end it is a matter of weighing pros and cons.

The pace was very intense, but we like to see many things while we are traveling and take advantage of the fact that we are there with the eternal feeling that we may never be there again and that, for this reason, it is worthwhile to make the most of the days. Surely some of you share this vision and others think the opposite. In the end it is a matter of finding the balance and doing what each one prefers.

Namibia, in step with South Africa

Let’s climb aboard the vintage wooden carriages and relax as some of the most varied scenery imaginable unfolds beyond the windows. With discreet and friendly service, the finest cuisine and a selection of South Africa’s finest wines, Rovos Rail harkens back to a simpler, more elegant era that embraces the timeless grace and romance of African exploration. The beautifully reconstructed carriages carry a maximum of 72 passengers in 36 superbly appointed suites. We will depart from the private Rovos station in Pretoria and travel south through the gold fields of the Witwatersrand. We can freshen up in our beautiful suite before joining other travelers in the lounge car or in the observation car at the rear of the train. At 13.00 hrs. we will enjoy lunch in the dining cars. At 16.30 hrs. we will have the opportunity to enjoy a pleasant tea in the lounge or observation cars. At 19.30 hrs. we will enjoy dinner in the dining cars. We have to remember that the dress code for dinner is “formal”. Overnight on board. Day 4 Kimberley – Karoo Uptington (All Inclusive) After enjoying breakfast in the dining cars, we will enjoy a tour of the Kimberley Diamond Mine Museum and the Big Hole. Capital of the Northern Cape, Kimberley is well known for the discovery of diamonds that led to its settlement in 1871.

Stage 5 Namibia – South Africa (Round the World Tour)

If you can’t wait any longer and want to make this South Africa itinerary a reality, you don’t have to, as it is easily travelable. The country has already been open to tourism for a few months and restrictions are minimal.

Moreover, as we will tell you throughout this article, the requirements for travel to South Africa now in 2022 are very easy to meet. Both vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers against the coronavirus can enter the African nation.

What will you find if you travel to South Africa now?  A climate of normality. On June 23, all pandemic-related measures were lifted. In fact, it is not even necessary to wear masks indoors.

South Africa promises you a thousand adventures, which is why IATI Backpacker is the best insurance for this trip. Not only does it cover you for a silly accident like a sprained ankle while walking around Cape Town, but you’ll also be protected while doing adventure sports like diving with the great white shark or hiking in search of animals in the Kruger Park.

How much does it cost to travel to Africa | #CuantoCuestaViajarVAM

When planning your trip to Namibia the first thing to check with your Rhino Africa consultant is whether it is better to use charter flights or drive around Namibia. In this section we provide the advantages and disadvantages of both.The advantages of flying in Namibia

The most obvious advantage of driving in Namibia is the affordability as, compared to flying, driving allows you to explore Namibia at a fraction of the cost. The scenery in Namibia is spectacular and by traveling by road you will be able to fully immerse yourself in the landscape, discover places off the beaten tourist track and really appreciate Namibia at your own pace.The disadvantages of driving in Namibia.

Let’s be honest, renting a vehicle, driving in the desert, in the middle of nowhere, with no phone coverage and loneliness can be a bit intimidating. Renting a vehicle is not for the faint hearted and only certain people enjoy it. In general, roads are not well maintained and traveling between popular tourist destinations requires traveling long distances in a day, which consumes precious time to enjoy the country. We recommend consulting with your Rhino Africa consultant before deciding to travel by road. Traveling by road is time consuming and requires a week or more to enjoy your Namibia vacation.
