Namibia safaris are a perfect starting point for anyone who wants to tour independently in Africa. It has everything for a perfect self-drive holiday, from good roads to epic wildlife and landscape viewing. The destination is best travelled by vehicle, as it allows you to make your way through the regions, seeing every view as it comes. You wouldn’t get half the experience if you were to do it any other way.

Namibia has therefore embraced this and has done a huge amount to make itself home to the perfect self drive adventure, which it has achieved. The country has a fantastic road network in place, a stunning collection of lodges and campsites, and is a very safe place to travel. The people here are very friendly too. So whether it’s your first time self driving and you’re nervous, Namibia will welcome you warmly, or whether you’re an adventurer wanting to go into the unknown, Namibia will deliver.

We carefully plan your itinerary to avoid covering huge distances which are very tiring on a self drive in Namibia and we always make sure that we create very manageable itineraries, allowing plenty of time for rest and relaxation in each place before your exciting journey continues.

Our Namibia Office

Namibia is one of our longest-standing destinations and we have our own Windhoek office and team of three there, led by a very experienced guide Jens Denk. Having them there means that Safari Drive clients get the best possible local briefing, service and back up (24 hours a day) before heading into the bush in our 4×4’s.
