60 – 80 km/h is believed to be a safe speed on gravel roads. By abiding by this, you will most likely be able to control your vehicle when in a dangerous situation. It often happens that gravel roads change rapidly from a hard surface to soft sand, on which it becomes very difficult to control a vehicle that is travelling at a higher speed.


120 km/h is the speed limit on tarred open roads; however, 100 km/h is advisable until you are familiar with the tarred roads and conditions of the area. Please do not exceed speed limits.

If you see animals close to or on the road, slow down and be cautious. Try to avoid travelling at night as certain animals are more active and thus the risk of a possible collision is higher. It is advised to always try and be at your destination at 17:00 or before dark.


As distances can be great when travelling across Namibia, ensure that you fill up as often as possible even though you may not be in need of it immediately. Make sure to have some cash on you as some petrol stations do not have card facilities.


Always ensure you have sufficient water and some food in case of a breakdown in a remote area where you would then need to wait for assistance.
