Moving to Windhoek for 2 yearsHi,
I'm planning to move from Turkey to Windhoek for a project for 2 years.
I am a 24-year-old woman with 2 cats. Here is my first problem: My beloved cats. I will deal with the procedures of moving pets to Namibia.
My questions are...
Considering I am a person from temperate zone, how much time do you think it may take for me to acclimate (I will move in November or December at latest)?
Do you think language will be a "big" problem for me thinking "even" English is not my native tongue?
What about insects in Windhoek? I am really scared of them, especially spiders...

1Windhoek temperatures in summer are about the same as in Turkey, what's the problem?
Urban wildlife in Southern Africa is quite harmless. I went camping for a few weeks in Nam and don't remember many insects at all - it's a desert, too dry. You have scorpions and mosquitos in Turkey, how do you survive those? :)

2I agree with #1.
Moreover, the weather in winter (especially at night) can even be colder than in Mediterranean countries!
People in Africa is very kind and always try to understand you, however english is not the mother tongue of most of them! Many people has a tribal tongue as first one, but they speak good english and are sympathetic if you are not very fluent in english.
