Namibia is a wonderful self-drive destination with many attractions to visit while on safari. The roads are well maintained and the infrastructure is relatively developed to offer the intrepid traveler a wonderful African holiday. A self-drive tour in Namibia combines very well with a lodge- or camping safari in Botswana or South Africa.

There are many reasons why Namibia is such an attractive self drive holiday destination:

: there are hundreds of places to stay and driving distances are very reasonable
: great roads ensure you can see almost the whole of Namibia by road year round
Wide choice: of both destinations, accommodation options, car rental options
Safe: there is almost no crime in Namibia
Back-up Support and Service: all the reputable car rental companies offer breakdown assistance

Namibia's vast open spaces allow for relaxed driving while enjoying every moment of your self drive holiday. The scenery changes daily and the diversity of destinations are astounding! The national parks offer a wide variety of wildlife, scenic beauty and comfortable restcamps.
