There are many good reasons to self-drive around Namibia, but it is a good idea to come prepared and that's where we come in. At Gondwana Travel Centre we have years of knowledge regarding what to see, when to see it, Namibian road conditions, accommodation establishments, campsites, car rental and anything else you may want to know about. We will help you plan your self-drive route and will recommend (and book) accommodation in Namibia, organise the rental car you require, and generally take all the hassle out of the planning process. Planning other peoples self-drive itineraries is the favourite part of our job; as it gives us an outlet for all the knowledge we have accumulated.

A daily entrance fee is payable at all National Parks throughout Namibia. Generally these fees can be paid at the office inside the park. However for the northern part of the Namib Naukluft Park (Welwitschia Drive, and the campsites around Bloedkoppie, Tinkas and Hobas) your permit needs to be pre-purchased as there is no office or permanent staff situated here. This permit can be purchased in either Windhoek or Swakopmund (at the NWR or Ministry of Environment & Tourism Offices) or at the NWR office at the Sesriem camp site.
Below are some questions that clientele often ask with regards to our self drive tours.
There are many reasons to joining a camping safari but for many people one of the primary reasons is that these safaris allow you to really experience the 'outdoors' nature of the country. Evenings spent under the stars in a remote location are what true Namibian memories are made of. Other reasons may include locations, some places in Namibia can not be visited without staying in a tent; and of course these trips add to the general sense of adventure.
Not to worry - you need no previous experience to join. Your guide (and in some cases the camp assistant) will help you put up your tent and gently ease you into the entire experience. This is not slumming it, you will have camping chairs, mattresses and tables.

Namibia is a very safe destination to travel to. The biggest challenge new travellers to Namibia face is taking to our gravel roads. However, stick to the rental company’s instructions and the legal speed limit and all will be well.
The majority of our clients arrive and depart Namibia via the Windhoek International Airport; hence it makes sense that itineraries end there. Of course, we can custom design itineraries to start and end absolutely anywhere.
We specialise in Namibia, and it is what we know best. We do however realise that many of our clients would like to add short trips to the Okavango or Victoria Falls to their holidays and are well placed to do this.
