Unite against Malaria

Medical services in Namibia are of very high standards, especially that of private clinics and doctors. However, the availability of most services is restricted to the main towns. Clean needles are available and all blood products are screened for transmittable diseases including hepatitis and HIV/AIDS.

In principle the tab water is drinkable, but it can taste after chlorine. Just to be safe we advice to buy bottled water.

The north of Namibia (including Etosha) is a malaria-endemic area.
