Traveling Namibia by car is a good option, as it allows you to reach the most remote places. To enjoy the country without any scares, we’ll give you some tips:

  • In Namibia, they drive on the left.
  • Seat belts are mandatory both in the front and the back of the vehicle.
  • Most of the roads are not tarmacked.
  • Fill the tank when a gas station is available.
  • Avoid driving at night.
  • Learn how to change a wheel.
  • Drive cautiously, animals can cross the road.
  • Respect traffic signs.
  • Do not use the phone while driving.
  • Learn how to get the vehicle out if it gets stuck in the sand.
  • Rest regularly.

In addition, we recommend you take:

  • At least one spare tire.
  • Gas in a drum.
  • A first aid kit.
  • Enough water and food for the entire journey.
  • An updated road map.

It is important that you rent a 4×4 vehicle, especially if you are traveling during the rainy season (from November to April), and that you have insurance.

CARAN, the Car Rental Association of Namibia, is a non-profit association that protects tourists and the car rental industry.
