Security has improved along the Namibia-Angola border following the recent peace in Angola, but banditry is still a problem in the area from Katwitwi (a village on the Okavango River in western Kavango region) to Kongola Town in Caprivi region. Landmines also pose a risk here and travelers should remain on the main road and avoid night travel. The most common crimes in the capital city of Windhoek are nonviolent crimes of opportunity such as purse snatching, pick-pocketing, and vehicle theft or break-ins. Most of these crimes can be avoided with common sense precautions.
