Is Namibia 'self-drive friendly'?

If you love a good road trip and all that goes with it, you’ll love a self-drive holiday in Namibia. Not only is Namibia self-drive friendly, Namibians themselves are a friendly bunch, which is good news if you’re thinking to stop and ask for directions. (They’ll likely invite you over for a barbecue too). A self-drive adventure in Namibia is exactly that – an adventure, since you will be travelling 'off the beaten track' on mostly easily navigable gravel roads to reach the main tourist areas. These roads are well signposted and maintained but don’t expect to travel without a little shake, rattle and roll and we aren’t referring to the hit blues song from Elvis. The roads can get bumpy here and there but it is all part of the adventure. Mind you, you’ll need only drive a little slower, which is an easy ask when the surrounding scenery offers much to take in. Add the fact of minimal traffic and an impressive low crime rate and it’s easy to see why Namibia is a popular self-drive destination. As an added benefit you'll have us for 24/7 support in country. It’s all about the journey, so hop into your rental vehicle, it’s time to explore. Discover more.
