Namibia

A broad desert country in Southern Africa. Between the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, Angola, Botswana and South Africa lies the wonderful land of Namibia. Perfect for a self-drive 4×4 road trip!

For a self-drive 4×4 trip, Namibia is paradise. With a 4×4 car you can independently discover the spacious country and visit almost every highlight! For example the sand dunes of Sossusvlei in de Namib Desert, Kaokoland in the north and Marienflus with the original nomadic Himba people. A 4×4 car is essential if you want to discover the arid and sparsely populated land. Best is to start and/or end in capital Windhoek. Many of our travellers combine Namibia and Botswana in their trip to Southern Africa. These countries are very well suited for first time Africa travellers! Our 24 days trip gives you the most optimal itinerary, including the bests parts of both countries.

Highlights Namibia

Namibia has a lot to offer. Sesriem and the sand dunes of Sossusvlei (Namib Desert) are essential parts of any Namibia trip. The pointy Spitzkoppe is on your way to the west coast. There you can visit some old and deserted miners villages, such as Kolmanskoppe. Or take a look at the seal colony at Skeleton Coast. In contrast are the towns of Swakopmund and Luderitz. Fish River Canyon, Ai-Ais and Transfrontier National Park give you a few from above on the beautiful lands. But Namibia is not only a desert, it also contains some big national parks where you can spot typical African wildlife! Etosha National Park is home to elephants, rhino’s, giraffes, zebra’s and many more.

Last but not least is the Caprivi Strip, a narrow strip of land between Botswana to the south and Angola and Zambia to the north. This narrow strip of land is part of Namibia and the most direct way to Livingstone (Zambia) and also Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe). To the north, the rivers Kunene, Okavango, and Zambezi form natural borders with Angola and Zambia.

Possibilities

Selfdrive4x4.com offers you both car rental and complete package trips to Namibia. We also offer trips to Namibia in combination with Botswana or the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. Our advice is to travel at least 20 days if you’re going to visit two or more countries. For more information or personal travel advice feel free to contact us.

We would recommend Selfdrive4x4.com to our friends

We booked a last minute 17 day self drive trip through Namibia with this company and everything was just perfect. Contact with the company was very pleasant and they kept us posted with updates about the progress of our trip. Gps, maps, book and 12V equipment was sent to our home as soon as our trip was confirmed.

Price wise it was a great deal and everything in Namibia (car and layovers) were to our satisfaction. We would definitely book again with this company and we would recommend it to our friends.
