A deeper exploration of these outdoor areas will reveal many fascinating wildlife species.

While the Khomas Region is relatively safe, it’s best to take precautions all the same. You should consider taking out travel insurance to cover theft and medical expenses.
Avoid flashing large amounts of cash or displaying your valuables, as pickpocketing does occur. While the townships are of interest, don’t stay around after sunset.
If you’re driving at night, don’t head outside of the city as wildlife and stray livestock may suddenly appear, which pose a serious hazard.
Learn about the local laws and customs before you arrive.
Should you be travelling from an area where yellow fever is a problem, you will have to provide proof of yellow fever vaccination. Certain parts of Namibia are at risk for malaria, so take care to guard against infection. You should also consider getting immunised against hepatitis A, typhoid, hepatitis B, and rabies. Other routine vaccinations are measles-mumps-rubella, diphtheria-tetanus, pertussis, polio, varicella, and your yearly influenza shot.
