This popular self-drive itinerary is a
flexible, cost-effective way to discover
the best that Namibia has to offer. Visit
the giant red sand dunes of Sossusvlei,
the adventure town of Swakopmund
and impressive granite landscapes in
Damaraland, where excursions include
a wildlife drive in search of elusive
desert-dwelling elephants. Drive east to
Etosha National Park which lends itself
to extraordinary self-drive safaris in
search of some of the many big cats that
roam the region. Namibian's drive on the
left and, although most of the country's
roads are gravel, regular grading
generally keeps them in good condition.
