My husband and I are planning on driving to Namibia from Cape Town later this month and have heard (a) it's fine to drive in a car and (b) you need a 4x4.
Can anyone help with the definitive answer please? We have no specific plan at the moment and just going to head north from Cape Town and, if necessary, exchange our small car for a four-wheel drive in Upington and take it the rest of the way.
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
So I'm heading to Namibia soon and I have a pretty open schedule. I'll be there for 8-10 days. I have my eyes fixed on Spencer Bay but it seems like all the tours that would go there (like the Saddle Hill 4x4 trail sort of thing) would require my own 4x4. I am happy to rent a car but I have no experience driving in those conditions and I'm not willing to hold a bunch of people back if a tour guide would even allow me to participate. Does anyone know if it is possible to go there as…
I am going to drive through Namibia from October 19th to November 4th. As I travel alone I like to invite someone who likes accompany me on a trip with a 4x4 through Namibia. I've not yet an exact plan but I like to go Etosha National Park. I have organized a 4x4 car in Windhoek.
I am 29 years old guy from Germany and I am looking forward to share the ride with someone.
Does somebody know which vaccines are needed to take the visa for Namibia?
also any info about precaucions for a healthy stay will be welcome,
thanks in advance,

We are looking for a cool destination in Africa and Namibia is on our wishlist. Can anybody recommend if January is a good time for traveling to Namibia?
And second, does anybody have a good experience with a local company that organizes self-drive holidays with a 4x4?

We're a group of 3 people planning a self drive (4X4) 7 night trip to Namibia in early November.
We're most interested in coastal activities, sand duning, landscapes and star gazing (and less interested in safaris as we've all been on safari several times).
What would be a manageable itinerary to avoid too much driving for 7 nights?
We were thinking of driving directly somewhere from Windhoek Airport and spending two nights in three locations before returning to Windhoek for the final night -…
