Please take note that there have been a high number of road accidents involving European visitors, many of which have been fatal.

Avoid:

  • Driving at night (also at dawn and dusk) because there is a real danger of stray animals crossing the road.
  • Driving over 80km/h on the gravel roads because they are very slippery.

Safe Driving Hints:

  • Reduce speed and take extra care on our gravel roads.
  • Avoid driving at night.
  • Remember, Namibia is left hand drive.
  • Always be aware of Antelope and other wild animals on the road, especially early morning and evening.
  • Only overtake when you have a clear view.

Remember:

  • Drive on the left side.
  • Keep your lights on at all times (so you can be seen because of the dust) .
  • Make sure that you are fully insured: vehicle, driver & passengers.
  • Make sure that your motor vehicle insurance also covers driving on gravel roads within Namibia and neighbouring countries.
  • Carry plenty of drinking water.
  • Keep your fuel tank topped up.
  • As distances are long, take as many breaks as you can. However, take care at roadside picnic stops, robberies have occurred.
  • Carry a first aid kit.
  • Punctures are common. If possible carry 2 spare tyres.

Have a safe drive!
