>>1288659>I will be travelling through western South Africa before Namibia and i was wondering if overland travelling between the two countries is a thing? Are there legit buses or do i need a car? I dont want to fly.
South African army did it to crush SWAPO back in the day, so there's probably a way around.>Is there anything in Windhoek? Are there any other cities worth visiting for the city itself?
Depends. I'd say it's pretty much a lame German colonial capitol. Expect white people and German and basically like being a European-style city in Africa. Worst of both worlds, probably. Germans did a shit job.>Is Namibia better than South Africa for watching animals?
Do you want to hunt them, or just watch them? Namibia might be easier for trophy hunting. SA has Kruger, but Namibia has pretty much all of Namibia. Rhinos in the south, elephants in Zambezi(Caprivi) in the north.
Namibia has a very high HIV/AIDS infection rate. I advise not fucking anyone, and definitely not without a rubber. Warm up a watermelon or something if you really need to nut.
There's a lot of diamonds in Namibia. You might want to figure out a way to get a couple of roughs out for cheap.

High risk for malaria and water-borne disease so get your shit and whatever.
