Namibia Travel Guide
Namibia’s Airports are a lot smaller than Europe’s and even neighbouring South Africa’s. Travellers 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 a 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.
