We traveled with Toyota Hillux 4 x 4 with rooftop tents. It was a great type of transport, we drove on some really bad roads (if we can call that bunches of rocks a road!), through sand, we crossed rivers, but not once this car did let us down. Neither one flat tyre! We were sleeping in rooftop tents, almost all the time in camping places and a couple of nights even in the wild.

Namibia has rich wildlife, we enjoyed so much in Etosha National Park and all other places where we saw african animals in the wild. But what left the most fond memories and made the biggest impact on us were the Namibian tribes. We spent few days with each of three tribes we visited. The interaction with the indigenous people that live their everyday life as they did thousands of years ago give you experiences that touch you deeply and change your way of seeing the world. That’s why for us a trip to this country should not end without a visit to at least one of the tribes and you should add it to your Namibia itinerary.

      Ana - Dear Paola, sometimes if you come in camps inside Etosha in the middle of the day, there’s a chance you might get a place (because of some potentially unused reservations), but you can’t know this in advance. One option outside Etosha, just few km from Anderson’s gate is Eldorado guest house and cammping. We stayed there one night and it was nice. Maybe you can try if there’s still free space. For wild camping – I don’t know, we didn’t do it there. I hope this will help and you will find a place to camp. Have a great time in Namibia! 🙂ReplyCancel
