Taxi Costs around town

Could you advise typical costs for night time taxi.

I am thinking of Joes Beerhouse to Olive Tree late at night.

Do you mean Olive Tree or Olive Grove? If the latter, we stayed there and although Joe's Beerhouse is within walking distance we booked Olive Grove's own taxi to pick us up at a pre arranged time. They just add it to the bill at the end. They also arranged the transfer from the airport. If you did mean Olive Tree, then sorry I can't help you but somebody else may be able to.

You could get in a 'local' taxi and it costs about N$10 but I would recommend you get a taxi through a firm your guesthouse uses and that is roughly N$40-N$50. Olive Grove are pretty good at getting people to and from restaurants so you are in safe hands there.

What makes you think you'll get done??

It's not London, you know!

And its a drive of about 1 minute. Hardly scope for the driver to take the unsuspecting tourists a detour around the suburbs....
