Tips for Self Driving in Namibia

If you prefer to travel at your own pace, then Albatros Travel’s self drive itineraries are perfect. We have put together numerous trips around Namibia, generally starting in Windhoek. You are given a choice of vehicle from a normal air-conditioned sedan to a large 4×4. We have indicated the driving distances and what you can expect at the main hotspots of your itinerary. You will be able to explore the stark contrasts of Namibia from the comfort of your own vehicle.

Namibia has many good roads that are tarred, and the main ones are long and straight. It is easy to get absorbed in the changing scenery.


On the gravel roads, if you are speeding it is harder to brake and remember to slow right down around corners. Also ensure that you have at least one spare tyre and if you are going off into remote areas with a 4×4 try to take two with you and a puncture repair kit.

Also – remember the warnings about animals in the road are there for a reason! Namibia has vast stretches of land where animals can roam freely, so keep your eyes open for kudus, oryx, elephant and others crossing in front of you!

Happy travelling.
