MOTOR CAR HIRE & 4 X 4 OFFROAD VEHICLE RENTALS - SAFARI TOURING NAMIBIA
A driver's licence is required by anyone wanting to drive in Namibia: this should bear a photograph of the holder and must have an English interpretation. On the other hand, an international driving permit, obtained prior to arrival, is also acceptable.

Drivers are required to produce their vehicle registration documents if requested by an official, then again a letter of authority to use the vehicle – from the hire company or proof of your rental contract is usually sufficient. The price of fuel in Namibia has built in third-party insurance premium, so you are not required to purchase that separately.

All the major towns are linked by a good network of tarred roads. Most secondary roads are surfaced with gravel and are suitable for all-weather conditions. Regional and country roads range from good to poor quality. Coastal routes are built by compacting salt into the surface which gives a hard and smooth finish. These roads are however dangerous if they get wet.

The speed limit is 60 km/h in towns and 120 km/h on tarred open road. A limit of 100 km/h or less is suggested on gravel roads, where lower speeds are essential, because of reduced visibility and a great risk of skidding on loose surfaces. Driving is done on the left-hand side of the road.

We offer a selection of sedan and off road vehicles for hire from Windhoek in Namibia. Cross border fees are applicable if you wish to venture into Botwana or any of the neighbouring counties.
