Wild animals may pose some danger. Travelers are advised that, even in the most serene settings, animals are wild and can pose a threat to life and safety. For example, baboons are encountered throughout Namibia and commonly scavenge the belongings of travelers. In some areas, especially where camping is common, baboons may be used to human presence and be quite bold in approaching or taking items that interest them. Travelers are cautioned to observe all local or park regulations and heed all instructions given by tour guides. Keep belongings and food put away or in secure containers.
In addition, tourists are advised that potentially dangerous areas sometimes lack fences and warning signs, such as hiking trails or cliff sides. Appropriate caution should be used in all unfamiliar surroundings.
