Car camping Namibia/Botswana first timer

Jump to last reply

I am planning a family trip to Namibia in early June/midJuly for 5 weeks. We will rent a 4x4 with 2 roof tents. My family consist of me and my wife and our 2 kids (9&13).

I have never been to Africa but have been enchanted with the Etosha Pan since watching a Nat Geo program in the 70's. I live in a rugged part of Costa Rica and own an adventure company however, I admit I'm clueless here. i.e., vaccinations, truck rental costs and reputable companies, viability of finding ca,pero und logging without prior reservations and how to reserve in advance, absolute needs to bring with me from the states such as related camping gear or is it rentable there?

The following is copied from an old forum from a "Jesron" years ago but the itinerary seemed plausible and he also had children. Any feedback on some of the accommodation would be great and if there are some places which we shouldn´t miss would be nice too in addition to what an African novice might benefit knowing. Also, what did this itinerary cost, more or less, in today's currency. Will a cc work or is cash best?
