fly or drive to Namibia?

Jump to last reply

We will be in South Africa and Namibia for about 3 weeks next May. In Namibia we want to see Etosha, Windhoek, and Sossusvlei.

What do those of you with experience advise re flying vs. driving? From Cape Town, should we fly to Windhoek and rent a car there, then drive to Etosha and back down south, then back to Windhoek and fly back to SA? Or should we drive from Cape Town to Sossusvei, then to Windhoek, and then on up to Etosha? And then drive or fly back to Cape Town?

Is it much of a hassle to cross the border with a rental car? Would we use too much time just driving, time we should rather spend seeing sights?

Does it make more sense to fly into Namibia from Jo'burg than from Cape Town?

We are experienced at driving in SA, Swaziland, and Lesotho, and enjoy seeing the countryside close up from a car rather than a plane, but we also don't want to spend days doing a lot of driving that's boring.

Thanks for your advice!

Celia
