Adventure seekers can go sandboarding, skydiving, or hot air ballooning, while those seeking relaxation can unwind on the beaches of Swakopmund or take a scenic drive along the Skeleton Coast. With friendly locals, delicious cuisine, and a rich history, Namibia is a must-visit destination for any traveler looking for an unforgettable African experience.
Namibia Immunization Recommendations and Requirements
Before traveling, make sure you are up-to-date on all of your routine immunizations including influenza and COVID-19. Note that many vaccines that are now considered "routine" were not available until recent decades so you may not have received them at all, depending on your age and other factors.
Infants, 6 to 11 months old should receive one dose of MMR and Hepatitis A prior to visiting Namibia. This does not count toward routine childhood immunizations.
