Newspapers

The Namibian is published on weekdays and covers both local and regional news, although travellers may find its international coverage a bit skimpy.

The Observer is published on weekends and is worth a read if you're into the more sordid details of Namibian society. Other daily's include the Afrikaans, Republikein, and German, Allgemeine Zeitung.

International and South African papers are available at larger newsagents.
