Hello TA Nation,
I'm going to be traveling in Namibia and was considering putting Angola on the itinerary but it seems like it may be quite a challenge. We're on a mid-range budget but I've read that it's extremely expensive. Also, I've read securing a visa can be difficult. I guess I'm trying to determine if it makes sense to cross the border for 5-7 days, as well as looking for answers to the following questions.
1.) We are self-driving, if we rent a car in Namibia will we have any problems taking it into Angola?
2.) Are there any budget flight options between the two capitals? All the flights I found were quite expensive.
3.) If we were to just stay in the south due to time constraint, are there any recommendations of things to do and see? And is there any opportunity to experience any of the ethnic tribes?
4.) Any safety issues for 2 female travelers?
Thanks for your time!
