Open Africa leads the way for smart travellers

Anyone travelling through Namibia with a smartphone will now be able to navigate their way along the newly developed Open Africa self-drive travel routes.  The Four Rivers, Arid Eden and Omulunga Palm routes are marked with road signs featuring QR codes that when scanned will open the relevant page on the Namibia Tourism Board website for up to date information on attractions, accommodation and other services on the route.
