Travelling in Namibia

Namibia is a vast country without many public transport options, so hiring a car is the best way of getting around. Namibia’s tarred and gravel roads are in good condition and are well maintained, making it easy to do a self-drive holiday.

It’s a good idea to have both a GPS (or offline map on your smartphone) and a paper map for navigating.

You don’t need to hire a 4×4 to drive around Namibia – 2WD vehicles can drive on the gravel roads – but it’s preferable to have a car with high ground clearance, especially for the ungraded dirt secondary roads.

If you’re traveling in Namibia’s more remote regions, such as the Skeleton Coast National Park, Kaokoveld, and Damaraland, you’ll need a 4×4. You’ll also need a 4×4 to explore Khaudum National Park, Nkasa Rupara National Park, and parts of Bwabwata National Park in the Zambezi Region.

Some car rental companies offer vehicles fully kitted out for camping trips, with rooftop tents, freezers, gas cookers, camping chairs and tables, sleeping bags, jerry cans, and cooking sets.

Namibia has one of the world’s highest rates of road accidents, and it’s recommended to take out fully comprehensive insurance to cover you for any damage or accidents that may happen during your trip.
