Car Hire

If you are planning to travel around Namibia (see the best spots to visit) and see some of the other incredible locations in our beautiful country, we would recommend hiring a car.

Namibia’s roads are a mixture of tar and gravel so it is highly recommended that you hire a 4×4. If you would like to camp during your stay we would recommend a 4×4 camper vehicle with a tent on the roof. For car hire options visit Rental Cars 

If your driver’s licence is not in English, an international driver’s licence is required.

Namibia is a very safe country but many parts can be quite remote. Always carry a spare tyre in your vehicle and fill up with petrol as often as you can.

We wish you safe travels and hope to see you at Erindi soon!
