Driving in Namibia/Botswana in late october?

Jump to last reply

With a stroke of good luck, we find ourselves able to extend our 3 week September South Africa trip to about 8-10 weeks. It is last minute, so we will likely not get what we want, but the flight is paid so we will make the most!
We want to drive in Namiba, but unfortunately we don't drive stick. Is a 4*4 essential, or can you do some nice routes in a car? (this we can get automatic transmission) Any advice welcome.

Also, we plan to go to Botswana as well. if we are to go in late October, are there areas not worth visiting from a game viewing perspective? We have the option of going in November, but have heard the heat and rains could be a problem so were planning on doing Botswana, then Namibia. Does that seem right?

thanks!
