just wondering if the end of October and in to the beginning of November is to late in the season to see animals in Namibia? My girlfriend really wants to see the big African animals, and we're trying to plan a 3+ week trip around this time
I am off to Namibia driving to Cape Town from Swakop with some buddies in a month and want to see some of the wrecks on the skeleton coast if possible. I looked into doing a flight but they seemed super expensive and so we binned that idea.
So what I am looking to find out is if anyone knows of any good wrecks that are accessible by 4x4 going south from Swakopmund to Deadvlei but that aren't going to take us wildly off our route (we need to get to Deadvlei by nightfall)
Gave up will and all hopes of doing Namibia independently. This country is too vast and too sparsely populated to have a functional public transport. I did Namibia on an organised tour as I got fed up with planning and exploring a myriad of unfeasible options. I think it was possible to do a few parts of Namibia on public transport: 1. Swakopmund and Walvis Bay and 2. Luderitz to include Kolmanskuppe; Option 2 for the hardcore travellers only. A big part of the country can be done with own…
Can anyone tell me if there are public buses from Hosea Kutako International Airport to Central Windhoek and if so the cost of a one way ticket. I'm being advised there are only private shuttle buses but the website IHateTaxis.com suggest there is but I'm struggling to get confirmation of this. Emails to the airport and public bus company go unanswered.
We are a couple making a trip from Brazzaville to Cape Town this summer.
We do not want to make a day to day exact-in-advance plan.
It´s a bit hard to know how long time will travel in Angola will take, to give one reason.
We will carry our own tent. Question is: To what a degree is booking necessary for Etosha,
doing it by camping?
I guess Etosha is the one place that could be a problem. But - how impossible is it to go there (with your own tent)
and book a spot just like that?
Hi! I am in Namibia but can't rent a car because I have the international driving license but not the one from Poland! : (
I have to drive 2 people around and hate to fail on them. So I'm wondering whether anyone would want to come with us for 2 weeks around Namibia. You wouldn't have to pay for the car, or the fuel, just accommodation and food. The route is fixes, but it's a great route. I could even pay you some money, I just don't want to let my friends down. They're my parents' friends but…
We are overlanding in Namibia at the moment and are very keen for a few days of adventure in Kaokoland in the next couple of weeks. There are three of us in one Land Rover Defender that we have driven from Kenya down to South Africa and now to Namibia. We have all the recovery equipment but no one to convoy with!
If we can tempt anyone into joining us, preferably with some 4x4 experience, please leave a reply in the comment or email <snip>

Leaving Pretoria early June I have a seat available in my 4x4 heading up to the Okavango either via Krueger Park or the Trans Kalagadi Park possibly the Kalahari Park or Etosha can be discussed. Share diesel, Park and camping fees. You will need your own tent etc. Cooking facilities available (no fridge). For easy going chill person.
Hello fellow travellers, I'm a solo female traveller & will be in Namibia today until May 29, 2016, staying at Chameleon. I'm looking to share car rental and expenses to explore the country or join a tour. Points of interest include Sossusvlei, Swakopmund, Etosha and up flexible for other destinations.
My GF and I have hired a 2wd Toyota Corolla for a self drive in and out of Windhoek. Excluding pick up days we've 23 days - in July - and want a relatively relaxing trip with some days off from behind the wheel. Is this enough time to see Sossusvlei, Spitzkoppe, Etosha and the Okavango and get back to Windhoek? Grateful for any input.
