Description [ correction ]

"A single gravelled carriageway. Rietfontein Border Control is n RSA and borders the Klein Menasse border in Namibia. The nearest town to this border on the Namibian side is Aroab, and on the South African side, Rietfontein.

Make sure you have a 'ZA' sticker on your car if travelling from South Africa, which can be purchased at a 'AA' agent or at outdoor retailers, a valid passport for showing at the border, which should be valid for another 6 months from the date you leave South Africa or your relevant country, a valid driver's license (ie. South Africa licenses are valid in Namibia), cash to pay a road user's fee (approx R220 for a car, R140 per trailer/camper. You can pay by credit card, in South Africa rand or Namibian dollar. It is safer to take enough cash with. An important point is to note that your vehicle's papers must be in order - proof of ownership of the vehicle or rental company, your drivers license, and a police clearance certificate. The police at the border post will check your engine number, chassis, trailer number and license details. If you own the vehicle, make sure that your insurance is covered while you travel in Namibia. Your bank must also issue you with a letter giving you authorisation to take the vehicle across the border, including dates. The bank letter and license papers must be signed by the Commissioner of Oaths. If you are using a rental car, make sure you have a letter from the rental company giving you permission to take the vehicle out of the country."
