What to remember when travelling around Namibia

Namibia is well known as a thoroughly modern country with excellent infrastructure and facilities. The roads are in very good condition and several car rental companies operate from the cities and airports. Namibia is an ideal self-drive destination, although distances between major centres are considerable (anything from a hundred to a couple of hundred kilometres). As Windhoek is situated virtually in the middle of the country, it makes sense to begin your journey here.

In addition to self-drive and car rental, there are various methods of travelling around Namibia, from shuttle/charter flights to trains and coaches, as well as a range of exciting Guided Safaris. Our expert travel consultants will assist you every step of the way to ensure the best travel arrangements for you.
