Magnificent wildlife safaris, sensational desert landscapes, ancient rock carvings, oceans of spectacular sand dunes which you can climb, sandboard down, quad bike up and balloon over, with a primitive environment supplied with life’s essentials (good beds and cold beer) at key points, and you have a truly fantastic wild destination.

There are calm and pleasant coastal towns – Swakopmund and Luderitz – sun that shines constantly (though interrupted by fog near the ocean) and 2, 000 kilometres of beaches – unused except by a few tough surfers and 100,000 seals.

Distances between the prime attractions are lengthy and roads are frequently dirt so expect to spend a lot of time on 4 dirty wheels.

Namibia downsides

• distances between main attractions are large (3 to 8 hours driving) and many roads are dirt so expect to spend a lot of time on 4 dirty wheels in occasionally challenging conditions.

• In a self-drive car you have a 1: 4 chance of damaging the vehicle in a single car accident (according to local sources). e. g. sliding off on a bend, so that could be an expensive option. At least get fullest possible insurance.
