    Hi Frenchy

    I joined a ship in Walvis Bay flying into and staying overnight near Windheok (Sp) it is probably one of the more civilised African places and although I didnt relax as much as Singapore etc I still had a nice stay and although everything is basic and the officials a little "full on" it shouldnt be too painful.

    Most seaman get put up in the same little hotel, sorry I cant remember the name but it was very basic (electricity was so bad it wouldnt charge my laptop) but this was all about 7 years ago so things may have changed.

    I wouldnt leave your hotel at night and make sure you have all of your documentation including agent letter handy when flying in or out.

    Cheers

    Chris

    Ive heard good things about the beer from Windhoek beer. Politically, its meant to be like apartheid era South Africa.

    Whenever I'm going somewhere new I have a quick look on 'Wikitravel':
    http://wikitravel.org/en/Namibia

    I know you're not there for your holidays, but there is generally some useful information about transport, customs, safety etc which is well worth a glance through.

    Hi people,

    I scheduled to join a vessel in Luderitz in Namibia in a weeks time.
    Anyone got any experience with Namibia?
    Any information, good or bad would be welcome.
