This as petrol in Zimbabwe costs the equivalent of N$ 6.32 more per litre and in South Africa it costs N$4.02 more. Petrol in Botswana meanwhile costs the equivalent of N$ 1.44 more and in Zambia N$ 3.56 more. In fact the only neighbouring country in which petrol is less expensive than Namibia, costing the equivalent of N$ 11.04 a litre less, in Angola – something that has led to fuel smuggling in the north of the country.
