Affordable South Africa and Namibia
TRAVEL TO NAMIBIA & SOUTH AFRICA IN 2016:
PRICES THE SAME AS A DECADE AGO
Right now, the Rand is weaker than it’s ever been, making these destinations alluringly affordable
Leading specialist safari operator Expert Africa reports a stark truth: fly-drive holidays to Namibia and South Africa are now selling at the same price as ten years ago.
The South African Rand (which is tied 1=1 to the Namibian Dollar) is weaker than it’s ever been, at around £1 = N$21.
Compare this to 2011 – when the Rand was especially strong (£1= N$11), making both destinations very expensive – and it becomes obvious that travel to these two countries in 2016 is remarkably inexpensive.
To put this in context, Expert Africa’s 14-night Caracal Self-drive Safari – taking in the main highlights of both southern and northern Namibia, including the Namib Desert, Swakopmund, Damaraland and Etosha – costs in 2016 from just £1,057 pp (based on two sharing) including half board accommodation for nine nights, bed and breakfast for five nights, and car hire, but excluding international flights.
In 2011, an almost-identical itinerary was priced from £1,723 pp – 60% more than the 2016 prices.
Ten years ago, in 2006, the same trip was priced from £1,059 pp – almost identical to today’s cost.
