Namibia Self-Drive Adventure

Take the wheel and get ready to adventure, African style! You’ll experience the freedom of a self-drive adventure in the desert landscape of Namibia. Road trips aren’t always possible in Africa but Namibia is a different beast. It has an incredible road system making it easy to load up the 4x4 and go exploring on your own. Expect epic sand dunes, miles of pristine coastline and unique wildlife.

All the things you’re dying to ask but haven’t

The landscape seems to go on forever; the history is fascinating and Namibia is full of opportunities for adventure activities. Not only do you get to choose your pace, but we also offer a range of accommodation options from simple campsites to luxurious hotels. This trip is also available with a driver and guide. Just ask!

"For a seemingly complicated trip, nemo made things very easy. This was the perfect balance between a classic road trip and a luxury adventure, thanks guys!"

Climb the never-ending 'Dune 45' for some incredible views
Top Tip: Don’t be put off by the idea of “African roads.” Self-drive trips in Namibia are easy to do and the locals are friendly and happy to help.
The landscapes throughout the trip are truly incredible, what a road trip!
Weather Watch: Namibia is a year-round destination. May to October is the dry season and best for wildlife viewing but can get busy over school holidays. From November to February it can get very hot!
The Etosha region is a fantastic game viewing area
