Before leaving for Namibia we suggest a check-up by your physician and to address any dental problem. Upon returning home notify your physician in the event that you develop fever, diarrhoea or skin rash.
We remind you to attend to all preventive care well ahead of time, to take all your medication with you and we strongly suggest to get an insurance policy which covers expenses to return home in case of an emergency.
Typhoid fever and hepatitis A and B are endemic: to prevent them you need a vaccination and we strongly suggest to get a tetanus shot as well.
You run the risk of contracting malaria only in the northern rural regions (from November to June) and in the Kavango and Kunene rivers valley: if you plan to visit these areas we suggest malaria prevention prophylaxis.
