Top tips for renting a car in Namibia

  • The major cities in Namibia, like Windhoek and Walvis Bay, are connected by a developed system of local and intercity trains and buses. If you want to go outside of these cities and explore the desert and other natural attractions in the country—like the Etosha National Park and Sossusvlei—without taking an organized tour, then you will have to take your own vehicle.
  • Although Namibia’s road and highway network is mostly in good condition and easily accessible with compact and economy cars, exploring the areas outside of the larger cities will require a four-by-four. Many rental companies in Namibia, such as Hertz and Thrifty, offer four-wheel drive vehicles for travelers looking to explore the desert regions and the areas around Namibia’s national parks.
  • If you’re planning on renting a car in Namibia and you’re traveling with children, one thing to note is that Namibia requires all children under the age of eight to be secured in a child seat. Because of their common use, many rental companies, like Avis and Hertz, offer child seats as an add-on to your reservation.
  • Crossing the border with a car you rented in Namibia is generally a straightforward process. Simply inform your rental car agency of which border you’ll be crossing at the time of your reservation, so that they can prepare the correct papers. After that, all you will have to do will be to pay the border-crossing fee at whichever border you cross. Fees vary by country, but they generally start at around 500 NAD (35 USD).
  • Book your rental car in Namibia at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size rental cars in Namibia are around -128% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What is driving like in Namibia?

    Driving in Namibia can differ greatly based on your location, but the road system is generally comprised of well-maintained roads that offer easy access to many popular tourist destinations. Exercise caution and use your high beams when driving in rural areas at night, as wildlife is more active after the daylight hours and can be difficult to spot in time.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Namibia?

    To legally rent a car in Namibia, you must be over the age of 21, but only Avis and a handful of other providers will allow those under 23 or under 25 to rent a car. In either case, you’ll have to have had your driver’s license for at least a year, and you’ll need an international driving permit if your driver’s license isn’t in English.

  • How much does petrol cost in Namibia?

    Petrol prices in Namibia are slightly higher than the average in the US, depending on where you are in the country. Generally, petrol prices in Namibia are around 49.40 NAD (3.43 USD) per gallon. Petrol stations in Namibia are full-service and rarely accept cards, so make sure to have enough cash for petrol and for tipping the attendant.

  • What are the speed limits in Namibia?

    The speed limits in Namibia are similar to the limits on roads in the United States. When traveling on urban roads, you’ll have a speed limit of around 60 km/h (37 mph). On gravel roads, the speed limit will be around 100 km/h (62 mph), and on paved roads and highways, the speed limit will be around 120 km/h (75 mph). Speed limits are strictly enforced in Namibia, so driving a bit under the limit is advised.
