Why rent a car in Namibia?

Namibia is a great country to explore by car. The distances are huge, but the long traveling will be justified as there will always be a unique landscape awaiting you at the end, be it ocean, cliffs, or desert. 

Namibia Car Rental

Top ways to enter Namibia

  • Windhoek Hosea Kutako Airport: Namibia’s main airport has flights to and from domestic and African destinations, as well as European cities like Amsterdam and Frankfurt. 
  • Walvis Bay Airport: Namibia’s second airport has good connections to Cape Town and Johannesburg in neighboring South Africa. 
  • Windhoek Eros Airport: The capital city’s other airport is quite small, but hosts flights to and from many interesting domestic destinations.
  • By land: If your rental car provider permits it and you have the visa and other necessary entry documentation in order, it might be possible to pick up a car in a neighboring country and then drive to Namibia. Large international airports near Namibia include Cape Town Airport in South Africa and Gaborone Airport in Botswana. 

Top cities and places to visit

  • Windhoek: The capital of Namibia is a good place to learn about the country’s fascinating history through its art, culture, and architecture.
  • Walvis Bay: Located on the Atlantic Coast and also on the edge of the Namib Desert, Walvis Bay is an absolutely unique destination where you can go surfing or dolpin watching one day, then on a desert safari the next.
  • Nature Parks: Etosha National Park, Fish River Canyon Park, Waterberg Plateau Park are just some of the nature areas that are scattered throughout the country show Namibia’s amazing wildlife and diversity.
  • Kaokoland: This area near the border with Angola might be a challenge to reach, but seeing the desert elephants and lions, mountains, and Epupa Waterfalls are just some of the reasons why the hardship will be more than justified.
  • Kalahari Desert: Located on the very east of the country, this desert’s landscape will make you truly feel like you’re on another planet.

Most popular rental car

The most popular rental car in Namibia is the Nissan X-Trail 4x4, but travelers also tend to pick the Toyota RAV4 and the Toyota Fortuner.

Most popular types of rental car

The most popular rental car type in Namibia is a fullsize, followed by standard and compact. Large parts of Namibia’s terrain can be challenging, especially the nature areas away from the main highways, so  it might be a good idea to choose a powerful vehicle fit for the challenge.

Top driving routes

  1. Windhoek - Walvis Bay (395 km / 245 mi) The distance between the two main cities of Namibia can be done in just about four hours if you drive the highways B1 and B2. Another option is to travel along highway C28 which will take about an hour longer, but will let you stop at Tsaobis Nature Park and Namib-Naukluft National Park on the way.
  2. Windhoek - Cape Town (1,479 km / 919 mi) Traveling by car from Windhoek to Cape Town, one of Africa’s most famous cities, takes at least two days, but many travelers still choose to do it as it lets you truly see and experience what Southwest Africa is about. Note that you’ll have to cross a national border, so check with your car rental provider first to make sure they allow it. Also, make sure if the citizens of your country need a visa to enter South Africa.
  3. Windhoek - Victoria Falls (1,427 km / 887 mi) The long drive will be justified not only in that you’ll get to see the Victoria Falls on Zambezi river at the finish line, but also because a long part of it will take you through Namibia’s northeastern corridor and the Bwabwata National Park.
