Namibia is great destination for anyone wanting to do a self drive in Africa. It is a very fascinating country to explore- with a perfect mix of landscapes, wildlife viewing, architecture and culture. It is very safe and has a good road system. It is a great country for families wanting to go on a safari. The climate is great with comfortable conditions throughout most of the year. There are plenty of lodges, camps and hotels in most places otherwise setting up your own campsite can also be an option depending on the regulations and the area.
There are plenty of activities in Namibia such as sand boarding, hot air ballooning, visiting the Fish River canyon or driving a 4x4 to the bottom of the canyon. Standing on top of the world’s highest dunes in Sossusvlei or riding down on a sand board is enough to get your adrenaline pumping. Surfing the beaches which is definitely not for the faint hearted and especially with water temperatures averaging 6°C. These are just a few of the many activities.Malaria
There is Malaria present in Namibia. From Windhoek up to the Angola border in the north there is a very high risk of malaria, whilst the rest of the country is low to no risk.Roads in Namibia
The general speed limit in Namibia is a comfortable 120km/h on the tar roads outside of town and 100 km/h on gravel roads. In built up areas the speed limit is normally 60km/h. Just like South Africa and Botswana, driving is on the left hand side of the road. Seat belts are to be worn at all times. Long distance, poor mobile coverage outside of towns and infrequent fuel station that will only take cash mean that proper planning ahead is necessary.Electricity
The Namibian electricity supply is 220V and the outlets are of the three pin round type.Vaccinations
Vaccinations for yellow fever for people coming from affected countries are required. Inoculation regulations can change at short notice. Please seek medical advice in case of doubt.
