A self drive safari through the wilderness of Africa, one of the most exciting, adventurous and rewarding things you will ever experience. The freedom to do whatever, whenever you like, to become connected with nature, to get away from it al. Self drives in Namibia is not only very safe but also the most popular way to travel, with more than 85% of gravel roads, well maintained. Whether you want to camp, or stay over at a lodge, or even a combination, it is no problem.
Your Questions :
“Isn’t it dangerous?”, “How do we plan it?”, “How do we know what to do?”.
You don’t have to worry, if you have a sense of adventure, a bit of common sense, and be prepared to learn some new things, you’re ready.
When self driving you must accept your level of experience, stay on the roads you are comfortable with and do not compare yourself with professional tour guides.
Namibia is a fairly easy country to drive, with good roads, petrol stations and shops at least every 3 to 4 hours. There are roads requiring advance off-roading (sand, mud, water and rocks ) and navigation skills. Do not attempt to drive these roads on your own, unless you are well experienced. Always be on the lookout for wild animals in the parks. Never drive without enough water for a day of two and fill up on the snacks whenever you can. This might sounds harsh, it’s usually not necessary to relay on emergency supplies, but it is the best practice.
Provided that you plan ahead and prepare well, it is not difficult.
