I've got 3 weeks to go! Time to order foreign currency from the bank. I'm wondering about cash and how much and of what type I should take. I've got a handle on the tips at camp and the VISA for Zimbabwe. I'll be hunting in Namibia and spending two extra days in Windhoek before leaving for Victoria Falls for two days before heading home. I plan on using credit cards for all the purchases that I can so I don't have to carry much cash. Which raises the question, How much do I need to take with me? I plan to visit the wood carver's market north of Windhoek - do they accept credit cards? I wouldn't think so, but I've been surprised before. Also, what kind of prices are they asking for carvings that fit inside checked luggage. Do they want USD or NAD or Rand? I want to get about an 18" cape buffalo carving and a few other things. What about meals, do most places take credit cards? What do lunches and dinner run? I see the menu for 3 monkey's resturant in Vic falls runs about $15 for a hamburger - I assume that is USD since I've heard the Zim govt wants USD for VISAs instead of their own money. Is that typical of meals in Windhoek & Vic falls?
