National Parks

If you are planning to visit any of Namibia's spectacular national parks, remember that an entry permit is required, and a daily fee needs to be paid to the Ministry of the Environment and Tourism. Permits are issued at the MET office in Windhoek, which is located inside the Phillip Troskie Bulding (+264 61 284 2111), or may be purchased at park gates in most cases. Permits for Brandberg are issued separately by the National Heritage Council located at 54 Robert Mugabe Avenue. Accommodation on national park grounds is best booked well in advance, as it may be in short supply during peak season. Bookings can be done online or in person at the Namibia Wildlife Resorts office at Erkrath Building, 189 Independence Avenue. For self-guided tours, 4x4 trucks (four-wheelers) offer the most flexibility in terms of exploring some of the more rugged terrain and venturing onto unpaved roads.
