Airports & Airstrips
Hosea Kutako International Airport (Windhoek) caters primarily for international and regional air traffic while Eros Airport, situated within the municipal boundaries of Windhoek, handles domestic flights.

All major Namibian tourist destinations have airports, landing strips and/or heliports to accommodate holidaymakers travelling by air.

Although Namibia has over 300 known airfields, travellers are cautioned not to land at unlicensed airfields, as the condition is not always known.

Aircraft fuel is usually not available at the landing strips, and landings must be arranged in advance.

Scheduled Flights
There are frequent flights from Johannesburg and Cape Town to Windhoek and Walvis Bay. Regular flights also operate between Windhoek and Swakopmund.
Scheduled flights from Maun and Victoria Falls to Windhoek are also available.

Shuttle/Charter Flights
Light aircraft shuttle flights are available into the Sossusvlei and Etosha areas, but most areas necessitate a private charter from Windhoek or Swakopmund.

Private transport available includes hired car, 4x4 vehicle or light aircraft.

By Road
Namibia is directly accessible by the regular Intercape Mainliner bus service from Johannesburg, Cape Town and Victoria Falls.

The country is well geared for self-drive tours and is also a convenient option from the neighbouring countries.

Road Conditions
A two-wheel drive vehicle is adequate for a self-drive holiday.
The country has a well-established road network, of which some 5 450 km is tarred and 37 000 km consists of gravel and earth roads, providing access to the majority of towns, parks, nature reserves and tourist attractions in the country.

Road conditions are good and well signposted.

Two major development projects, the Trans-Caprivi Highway and the Trans-Kalahari Highway, provide access to Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa and link Namibia with other Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries for trade, travel and communication

Car Rental Tours
Namibia is an ideal self-drive destination although distances between major centres are considerable. All our guests beginning their self-drive journey in Windhoek or Swakopmund are given a comprehensive briefing by our knowledgeable staff regarding road conditions, GPS which suggests sightseeing along the route and other relevant information.

Trains and Coaches
Local trains and buses are not really a suitable option for travellers around Namibia.

However, a scenic journey on a privately run train, the Desert Express, between Windhoek and Swakopmund is a highlight for travellers.

    • Your Driver Licence must be in English otherwise an International licence is required in Namibia

    • It is compulsory to have your drivers licence with you at all times

    • It is compulsory for the driver and all passengers to wear safety belts.

    • The speed limit on tarred national roads is 120 km per hour. However we recommend you do not exceed 100   km per hour.

    • The speed limit in towns and villages is 60 km per hour unless otherwise stated

    • The maximum speed limit on gravel roads is 80 km per hour. Not all gravel roads are the same! Please adjust your speed according to the condition of the road.

As Custom Design Safari Specialists we can tailor-make any itinerary to suit individual needs and interests.
