How Safe is Namibia/Windhoek?

Namibia is one of the safest countries in Africa. Irrespective of this, please don’t be careless with your valuables as there are still incidences of pickpocketing, mugging or breaking into cars. Don’t wear valuable jewellery or leave anything visible in the car. These sensible small rules apply to every big city across the world so you should, feel very comfortable on the streets of Windhoek and can walk around safely. At night we recommend always walking with a buddy and to call a taxi such as ‘Lefa’ to bring you home safely.
