Experience the Freedom & Flexibility to Explore at Your own Pace. Take the Ultimate Road Trip!
Namibia is a vast country, even by African standards, covering an area approximately twice the size of California and four times the size of the United Kingdom, but with a population of a mere 2 million. This gives one of the lowest population densities in the world. It is also an 'ageless land’; visible through the heritage of rock art created by stone-age artists and geological attractions such as the petrified forest where fossilised tree trunks have lain for over 280 million years. When added to the space and silence, these factors all contribute to a feeling of antiquity, solitude and wilderness.
On this 13 day Namibian Self-Drive Safari you will experience this magnificent and memorable country in a very personal way. You will drive your own rented vehicle and enjoy the freedom and flexibility to explore the stunning landscapes of Namibia. We’ll help you design a unique, personalized itinerary (what follows is a sample route that we can easily customize). We’ll also book the lodging and deliver the vehicle to your hotel. Join game drives with professional guides at your lodges but still retain the flexibility to explore at your own pace while driving between lodges. Namibia is a very safe country and one the best to experience your first self-drive safari!
While long driving times cannot be avoided (expect an average of 5 – 7 hours per day, where a two week safari will easily clock over 1200 miles), in Namibia it's about enjoying the journey rather than rushing from place to place and many routes include various sights of interest worthy of a stopover. Namibia boasts an excellent infrastructure and although 70% of all roads are gravel, they are in good condition and well maintained.
