Land of open spaces and ancient cultures
SELF DRIVE NAMIBIA
Namibia is one of the top self-drive safari destinations in the world and with so much to see and explore what better way to experience it than by road. We recommend that you resist the urge to spend six hours on the road every day, and rather slow down and enjoy your self drive Namibia experience. This way you will return home relaxed with loads of memories to share with family and friends.
NAMIBIA SELF DRIVE HIGHLIGHTS
Namibia’s desert-adapted wildlife and scenic landscapes will leave you awestruck. The Etosha National Park is a popular favorite on the list of things to see and explore. It’s also one of the best national parks to spot the white and black rhino, lions, cheetahs, elephants and leopard. Don’t forget the beautiful Caprivi Strip, the mesmerising Skeleton Coast and if you’re up for the challenge, a climb up Big Daddy; the highest sand dune in the Sossusvlei area. These highlights barely scratch the surface of what else there is to see and explore on a self drive Namibia safari. We offer four self drive Namibia routes that can be taken on their own or in combination. Each route offers 2 weeks or more of 4x4 adventure. We also offer three tour levels that determine the type of accommodation on the route, from self-catering and camping to luxury safari lodges. There are hundreds of accommodation options along these routes, which we can tailor to meet your needs based on the level you choose.
