Namibia Transportation: 95 reviews and 104 photos

  Toyota Landcruiser, a good choice

If part of the reason you're going to Namibia includes viewing and photographing game, then you really do need to have a vehicle with some sort of "pop top". The only way to get real 360 access to everything that happens around you will be to pop up through the roof. Working around windows will result in many, many missed photo opportunities.

And, I'd suggest 4WD if you're really going out in the wild.

We actually traveled with a guide, who brought her own company vehicle. But, such vehicles are available for hire, and are best obtained in Windhoek. For this type of vehicle, book early.
