With a rental car from Driveboo, you will be well equipped for your stay in the Khomas region. We work with renowned international car rental companies to offer the best deal and the widest selection of rental cars. For example:
You have several options from where you can pick up the hired car. Depending if you arrive at the airport, you can directly collect it at the rental station at Windhoek Airport (WDH). The other option would be to pick it up at Eros Airport (ERS). In the case of not arriving at the airport, you have the option to pick up the hired car at the rental station in Windhoek, the capital city of Namibia.
Khomas is one of the fourteen regions of Namibia, centred on the capital city Windhoek and provides, for this reason, superior transportation infrastructure. Its name refers to the Khomas Highland, a high plateau landscape that dominates this administrative unit.
The Namibian road network is well developed and provides access to all inhabited areas of the country. It is about 45,000 kilometres long, of which around 80 percent are unpaved slopes, mostly with a gravel base layer, which is maintained regularly or as required with the grader. Only the national roads, some main roads and the most important inner-city roads (about 6700 kilometres) are asphalted. In Namibia, as in all neighbouring countries except for Angola, there is left-hand traffic.
However, the four-wheel-drive is generally not required. An all-wheel-drive off-road vehicle can be useful during the rainy season, as rivers that are dry most of the year occasionally carry water, bridges are only common on expressways. Since SUVs are more robust than passenger cars, they are less prone to breakdowns on bad roads. An international driving licence is required. Although credit cards are widely used, cash is usually required for refuelling. Petrol is about 10% cheaper than in South Africa. Outside of the big cities (especially in the desert areas), you should take every opportunity to refuel because there are not public gas stations in every small town.
Namibia is located in Southern Africa and borders Angola to the north, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia to the east and South Africa to the south. The cold South Atlantic is the country's western border. Namibia is one of the most visited countries on the continent due to its unique geography and wildlife and is an ideal destination for safaris. The often untouched nature is protected and preserved by ecological and sustainable tourism.
Namibia was the last country in Africa that achieved its state independence in 1990 and has a history that is often marked by oppression. Namibia is a multi-ethnic state with different influences of ethnic groups and history. Some of Namibia's African cultures are among the oldest in the world. Prior to the First World War, Namibia was colonized by Germans, after which it was part of South Africa for over 70 years.
German and African cultures have the strongest influence on life in Namibia, which is evident in many areas: various festivals (in Windhuk carnival is celebrated), food (mix of German and African dishes), Wilhelminian architecture. Approximately 30,000 of the 2 million Namibians speak German as their mother tongue; this means that if you have to ask for the right direction, you can ask in German or English.

|Additional driver||Specify an additional driver for the rental car in advance. This way you can take turns driving and everyone can relax and enjoy the view. Simply show your driver's license and identity card to the local car rental company.|
|One way rental||One way rental means that you pick up the rental car at the location of your choice and simply return it to another car rental company. This option is particularly useful if you are planning a road trip and do not want to return to your starting point.|
If you are not in the mood for stress in the event of damage to your rental car, you should take out fully comprehensive insurance without excess. An accident can happen quickly, even if you are a safe and careful driver. Play it safe and choose the right insurance for Khomas in advance. You can also take out passenger accident insurance or glass and tyre insurance.
