Do I really need a 4x4 ?

Jump to last reply

This will be our first 2 weeks trip to Namibia next northern summer and will be travelling with 2 kids aged 11 and 5 years.
I like self-drive and our itinerary will cover:

Etosha NP
Skeleton coast
Sossuvslei
Swakopmund

+ 2 nights in Vic Falls before entering Namibia by air to Windoek

My question is whether or not a 4x4 is really necessary or anyway safer than a 2x4 due to gravel roads etc..We will remain on main roads.
I am already aware to keep the limited speed due to several fatal accidents.
