Packing list for Namibia

Since many places that you may end up visiting in Namibia are remote, it’s best to bring along any medication you might need, as well as a comprehensive first aid kit that includes antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs, antidiarrheal medication, antibacterial ointment, antimalarial tablets, rehydration electrolyte sachets, insect spray and repellent, water purification tablets and bandages.

For driving and hiking navigation, it’s a good idea when you have Wi-Fi to download offline maps of Namibia on your smartphone using the Google Maps and maps.me apps.
