Namibia Daylight Saving Time (DST)
Namibia is not using Daylight Saving Time.
Namibia uses West Africa Time WAT. WAT is UTC +0100. Namibia's latitude and longitude is 22° 00' S and 17 ° 00' E. Therefore being one hour ahead of UTC is just right for Namibia. Namibia is a relatively small country. It takes the sun just half an hour to “travel” from the east to the west of the country.
