While Namibians across thee country are rejoicing in the rain, the raging rivers are not to be taken lightly. Here the simple rule is – if you are too scared to walk through the river to test its depth – do not attempt to drive through it. Your car won’t make it either.
Most rivers in Namibia do not flow strongly for hours on end. But this time of the year, we do get a lot of flash floods – water that comes down suddenly with incredible speed and force. Do not become a victim. Rather turn around, find alternative accommodation and let the lodge know that you won’t make it.
Please be save.
