What to pack

We understand your concerns when deciding on what to pack for a trip to Namibia. 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.

Kindly bring the following with you:

Clothing

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.

Extras

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

Old Traders Lodge

Old Traders Lodge is our luxury accommodation option. The suites have all the necessary amenities, including an honesty bar and tea/coffee station. A laundry service, cleaning service, and all dining room meals are included in our rates.

Camp Elephant – Campsites

Camp Elephant’s camping option offers luxury ablution blocks, a fridge, kettle, stove top, self-service laundromat and individual braai areas. You will need a tent, mattress, bed linen, warm blankets for the cold evenings, and cutlery. For braaing, you will need your own wood and firelighters. For swimming, towels are available at reception.

Please note: food items, toilet paper, ice, candles, braai wood, firelighters, dishwashing soap, sponges, and dishtowels can be purchased at the Farmstall. You are welcome to bring your own supplies.

Camp Elephant – Chalets
