As flights can get quite expensive and chauffeur drivers are not always available in Namibia, you are usually left with two options – a self-drive holiday or meeting up with a tour group.


When arriving at a well-known airport such as Windhoek Hosea Kutako International Airport or even Walvis Bay Airport, car rental or hiring a 4×4 might be the best option. The type of vehicle would, however, depend on whether you’re planning to go on a safari holiday or a relaxing beach holiday along the Western coast of Africa.
