Namibia is home to state-regulated petrol and diesel prices. This allows the same prices at every fuel station at any given time and eliminates competition in the fuel sector. The prices are set by the Ministry of Mines and Energy on a monthly basis. Base price is given for Walvis Bay; prices for other areas are set by this base price plus an additional  price for transport (between 5-30 cents).

Valid as per 5 March 2014 (base price in Walvis Bay per litre)

  • 93-Oktan LRP – not sold anymore since 15 June 2013
    95-Oktan – N$ 12.29 (+25 ct)
    Diesel 500 ppm (standard) – N$ 12,82 (+25 ct)
    Diesel 50 ppm (premium) – N$ 12,92 (+25 ct)

Please note: by law fuel has to be paid in cash, however, since September 2011 more and more petrol stations allow paying fuel with credit cards. These can be found here.

The following companies have fuel stations (known as “petrol station”, “service station”, “garage” or “diensstasie”) in Namibia:

    I will be travelling to Walvis Bay at the end of this month and would like to know what the current diesel price per litre at: 1 Keetmanshoop
    2 Walvis Bay, and is the 50ppm now available in Namibia.

    Still no 50 ppm diesel in Namibia?

    • Travel-Namibia Team

      No, and it will not be made available for at least another year or so!

    Pay by garage card?
    No Low Sulphur diesel – 50ppm?

    • Travel-Namibia Team

      Dear Frank!
      Correct, there is no low sulphur diesel available in Namibia (I believe nowhere in Southern Africa except in South Africa). And yes, you may pay with Namibian Garage cards.
      Kind regards
