Driving tips (includes distances chart)

Suggested itineraries Are you wanting scenery, history or animals? All 3 can (and should) be included in any Namibian trip, but time and finances may determine your eventual choice.

One of the easiest ways to spend time in Namibia is in the desert (click here for a page based solely on the desert).

Basic notes:

Don't come to Namibia if you are a vegetarian. Even vegetable soup may have large chunks of meat floating in it. On the other hand, if you like meat and driving long distances, it is without doubt the greatest African visit you will ever make. And, if you are wanting to explore the remaining German links (besides the beer, brewed from malted barley, hops and water in strict compliance with the Reinheitsgebot, the German Purity Law of 1516) you should also try the sausages, smoked meats, cakes and pastries (everyone calls bread rolls Brötchen).

Recommended reading:

While Lonely Planet guides are usually well worth travelling with, the Namibia edition can't really be recommended. It seems to have more than the expected number of inaccuracies which can presumably only be the result of consistently poor research. The Africa Guide Namibia pages offer a good alternative.
