What currency do I need?
The currency in Namibia is the Namibian Dollar (NAD). South African Rand is also widely accepted in Namibia and 1 SA rand is equivalent to 1 Namibian dollar.
There are ATM machines at the airport, Windhoek and Gobabis (the nearest town to the Lifeline Clinic). There may be a small charge for cash withdrawals. We recommend that you withdraw cash from the airport when you arrive as you may need money before you get to Gobabis or Windhoek.
We do not generally recommend bringing travellers cheques as they cannot be cashed at the airport or on our sites. You can cash them in Windhoek and in Gobabis but you may have very limited opportunities to visit a bank during opening hours during your stay at the Lifeline Clinic. If you do decide to bring travellers cheques please ensure you have enough money to last until you are able to get them cashed.
