Namibia – a self-drive destination of extreme landscapes offering empty roads and an average of 300 days sunshine. Around every corner it holds delights for all age ranges and driving abilities with itineraries encompassing majestic sand dunes, fascinating wildlife, rugged mountain passes alongside water sports, adrenalin-soaked activities, comfortable lodges and a range of camping options including the freedom and solitude of wild camping.
Namibia On Wheels has been compiled from the authors’ vast personal experience, both good and bad, of traversing the length and breadth of Namibia. This first hand knowledge has been collated to produce a unique comprehensive guide offering everyone the chance to enjoy this fantastic country safely and to its fullest.
It will guide you through the whole process of planning a never to be forgotten road trip in this safe and increasingly popular, but relatively unknown, destination. Whether scenery, deserts and mountains, culture, adventure, conservation or wildlife captivates you, Namibia offers it all and this book will point you in the right direction. It contains rarely found information from itinerary planning, vehicle hire process and what to look for in a rental 4x4, through to subjects as diverse as health, money, cross border procedures, taking your own vehicle, motorcycling, photography, on the road advice and eco travel.
An array of photographs showing the diversity of Namibia’s scenery and wildlife to whet anyone’s appetite can be found on the attached website, which also offers downloadable itineraries and lists to help with packing, first aid kits, shopping and emergency help.
As an e-book, this publication will be an invaluable planning and touring aid for international visitors to take with them on their trip to Namibia.
