Can I drive to Namibia from South Africa?

You can drive to Namibia from just about anywhere given you don’t have to cross the ocean, but if you’re thinking of driving from South Africa, sure you can and there are seven border posts through which you could enter, two of which are through Transfrontier parks. While this may be a good idea if there are specific areas between the two countries you wish to include, you may otherwise want to rethink it. Most routes from South Africa to Namibia take you on roads with little to see and require at least two long days of driving, on top of which you will have to look at the costs of the vehicle drop off fee. In most cases it works out better to fly from South Africa to Namibia, rent a vehicle on arrival and rather add these days to your time in Namibia instead.
