|Notes on Activities:||(Some activities may be offered nearby).|
The Dorob National Park includes Walvis Bay and Swakopmund which offers most of the facilities, the info is for Swakopmund. (Nov-12). (Feb-2014): Take note: Garage or Petrol cards will no longer be accepted as a legal tender for purchase of fuel, spares or repairs in Namibia.
Cash, Debit and Credit cards are legal payment instruments, but many fuel stations choose NOT to accept Debit and/or Credit cards.
Therefore you are advised to either carry cash or ensure that the filling stations you intend to use will accept your Debit or Credit card. (Feb-2014).
A traveller travelling to Namibia during May 2014, found that a credit card was accepted at garages at these places: Swakopmund, Ai-Ais, Solitaire, Sesriem and Lüderitz. It seemed to be possible to pay by credit/debit card at the major tourist towns. Take extra cash with still in case! (May-2014).
