We understand your concerns when deciding on what to pack for a trip to Namibia, and bringing certain items from home is essential. Our country does have a harsh climate, so it is best to come well prepared. Erindi is situated in a malaria-free zone, so you won’t be needing any preventative tablets. The tap water is rated safe to drink. You need to bring the following items with you:


The cool winter months are from May through to September. We recommend warm clothes for mornings and evenings, including a winter jacket/anorak, gloves and a hat, and cooler clothes for the day, since winter days can be quite warm. The hot summer months are from October through to April. We recommend cool clothes, including comfortable walking shoes and sandals, and swimming costumes. But bring some warm clothes as well, including a coat and/or raincoat, as the evenings can be quite chilly.


  • International adaptors
  • sunscreen
  • mosquito repellent
  • personal medication
  • a travel first-aid kit
  • binoculars
  • cameras, lenses and chargers
  • Namibian or South African currency
