"Go for it on your own ...." Getting around Namibia Tip by SanguiniA
Getting around Namibia, Namibia: 6 reviews and 3 photos
Favorite thing: Namibia is just made to self-drive and explore on your own - it has excellent infrastructure and flexibility as regards how long you want to spend there, what you want to see, accomodation budget etc etc. It makes for a different and incredible road-trip. Take time to plan the route, get hold of a decent map, and I assure you there will be no trouble. If you are visiting and have even the minimal desire to self-drive - just do it, as you will regret not doing it afterwards!
For a better experience I would suggest a good guidebook and lots of research to make sure you don't miss anything that might interest you. If you are off on safari, get an animal guide and familiarise yourself with the animals and their behaviour before you set out for the safari.
Fondest memory: There is nothing more rewarding than spotting the animals on safari on your own, or the sense of freedom whilst driving in the desolate desert roads. Also there is this wonderful feeling of 'getting away from it all', especially while driving certain roads, where it is just you and the desert and rarely another car in sight.
