Namibia Travel Guide

Namibia’s Airports are a lot smaller than Europe’s and even neighboring South Africa’s. Travelers visiting Namibia, therefore, might want to opt for a 4×4 hire Namibia option, normal car rental for a self-drive holiday or meeting up with a tour group.

Airports in Namibia mostly have limited fleets and it is advised to book your travel option well in advance.

Namibia Travel Guide: Road conditions in Namibia

National roads in Namibia are mostly in good condition, but if you do decide to travel to the game reserves, national parks or famous sand dunes an equipped 4×4 vehicle is your best options.

Roads in and around game reserves and national parks are usually gravel and the rough terrain normally makes it a bit difficult to drive a sedan – keep this in mind when planning your trip. Also, allow an extra 3 to 4 hours travel time when you plan to travel on dirt roads and through national parks.
