Credit Cards & Currency

Credit Cards & Currency

The currency in Namibia is the Namibian Dollar (N$) which is linked to the South African Rand and is equal to it. These are the only two currencies accepted in Namibia, however the Namibian Dollar is not accepted in South Africa. Foreign currencies and traveler’s cheques can be exchanged upon arrival at the international airport Hosea Kutako or at the numerous foreign exchange bureaus which are available in all major towns throughout Namibia.  It is advisable for self-drive tourists to carry some cash for remote areas and to pay for all fuel expenses.

All major credit cards are generally accepted. Namibia has a good network of ATM’s facilities available for drawing cash.

Many lodges in Namibia accept credit cards – it is however wise to check with them first before your arrival.
