Hello there!

Such a truly wonderful part of the world. If you need information on what to see and where to stay, do check out our blog, and download the fact sheet and GPS waypoint files.

How long are you planning on travelling for?

Nambia is one part of the world which is very easy to hire a fully kitted 4x4 for travel in the region (and travel to South Africa, Botswana as well). I think I wrote a post a couple of years back that discussed hiring a vehicle (somewhere in the wealth of information on the forum!) I'll have a look for the link ...

I know someone on the forum I chatted to a few years back looked into the cost of hiring versus the cost of shopping a vehicle twice.

kind regards

Just did a little check:

Gemini / Transnamib are the people who chatted about shipping a vehicle to Namibia. Seems like MACS are the people to contact in the UK. 2 years ago the cost one way was approx. GBP2,600.

Still trying to find the post I wrote about vehicle hire ...

Hello
We've travelled to Namibia from the UK several times. Namibia is a truly wonderful place to visit with many 4x4 tracks taking you to see amazing scenery and wildlife.
Until now we have rented but are thinking of shipping our Hilux later this year. We're still checking out the red tape but apart from insurance, we think the most important document is probably the carnet available from the RAC here.
We have a shipping company local to us called CARS, based close to Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk who we are most likely to use. Friends recently shipped their vehicle with them to and from Durban and the total bill including all charges was around £6,000. Fuel price in Nam at present is about N$11/L Very Happy
What information have you gathered?
Regards
Ted and Anna
