Namibia is a vast, arid wilderness of rolling sand dunes, pounded by the Atlantic Ocean. Within this haunting landscape of endless desert and plains is a great diversity of wildlife that has adapted to life in this harsh environment. Though sparsely populated, this dramatic country has a well-maintained infrastructure, which makes self-drive or touring Namibia holidays an easy and rewarding option.
Self-drive holidays to Namibia
A self drive holiday through Namibia is a popular way to see Namibia especially as, this dramatic country has hundreds of miles of well-maintained and virtually empty roads, through spectacular landscapes, which make it a pleasure to explore. A two-week self-drive itinerary allows you to visit Namibia’s highlights whilst taking time to meander and relax. Most roads are suitable for a normal saloon car, but a 2x4, is popular as it gives higher ground clearance and greater comfort on the gravel roads. Throughout most of Namibia there is accommodation to suit all pockets, ranging from small, exclusive, 5-star lodges to good value guesthouses and national park rest camps. See our Open Road Self-Drive Namibia Safari and our Classic Self-Drive Namibia Holiday.

‘Rooftop camping’ is a great option if you want to mix self-drive and camping – your specially adapted vehicle has a pop-up tent on the roof and everything you need for a self-sufficient trip is provided, including mattresses, gas cooker and cool box! See our Self-Drive Roof-Top Camping Holiday
