General information about driving in Windhoek

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.

Explore Windhoek by rental car

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.
