AAA Car Rental: general information, driving tips, conditions of hire
Foreigners need an international driver's license when driving a car in Namibia. Visitors of neighbouring countries are exempt from this regulation. Motorists should always carry with them enough tools, if possible two spare wheels, a spade, a container with petrol, oil, drinking water, some food, first-aid kit, etc. Driving in Namibia is on the left side of the road. The speed limit is 120 km/h on open roads and 60 km/h in villages / towns. However, it is advisable to drive at a lower speed than 120 km/h on gravel roads because it can be very slippery. Safety belts must be worn at all times, traffic signs in Namibia are international. Warning signs showing animals must be respected because game often crosses the road unexpectedly, especially kudu and gemsbok antelopes. Therefore driving at a reduced speed during night time is an absolute must.
Please note that most places of interest and road are accessible with a sedan car and only some remote areas such as Kaokoland require 4x4 vehicles.
BECAUSE OF NAMIBIA'S VAST DISTANCES WE RECOMMEND UNLIMITED MILEAGE RENTAL OPTION.
