Currency in Namibia
The Namibian dollar is pegged to the South African rand. If you’re travelling to Namibia after spending time in South Africa, rands are accepted everywhere in Namibia (although Namibian dollars are not accepted in South Africa). You can draw cash from ATMs in Namibia using your international bank cards.
Many hotels, lodges and restaurants in towns will accept credit card payments, but you do need carry enough cash with you to cover yourself for places that don’t accept cards. You’ll also need cash for park entrance fees and tips.
Few petrol stations will accept cards for payment of petrol, and while there are usually ATMs at bigger petrol stations, many small stations will not have an ATM, so have enough cash for filling up with petrol in rural areas.
