Taxi

City buses have been phased out in favour of inexpensive shared taxis and minibuses. Collective taxis from the main ranks at Wernhill Park Centre follow set routes to Khomasdal and Katutura, and if your destination is along the way, you’ll pay less than US$1. With taxis caught from the main bus stations or ordered by radio dispatch, fares are either metered or calculated on a per-kilometre basis, but you may be able to negotiate a set fare per journey. Plan to spend between US$3 and US$3.50 to anywhere around the city centre. Try Crown Radio axis (211115, 0811 299116), Express Radio Taxis (239739) or Sunshine Radio Taxis (221029).
