ROAD CONDITION - Botswana and Namibia

      
Self drive: All the routes in our self drive packages will good for 2x4 vehicles. A handful of major roads are tarred, well signposted, and relatively well maintained, so it is possible to cover long distances along them in relative comfort.
Sealed Roads: The sealed roads are in a good and moderate condition. Please drive carefully as many stray cattle, goats and donkeys are constantly on the roads especially in Botswana. Wild animals such as elephant, kudu, gemsbok and ostriches frequently cross the road.

Road works are common and are not well marked. Be on the alert and keep to the speed limit. Potholes are not well marked and will be encountered on some roads. Keep your eyes on the road.

Metal Roads: Be careful when driving on gravel roads. The gravel roads range from well maintained straight roads that can safely be travelled at 70-80 km/h (the official speed limit of 100 km/h on gravel roads is not advisable), to bumpy tracks that are difficult to distinguish from the rock-strewn landscape. All drivers must be aware of the severe danger of rolling their vehicles in Namibia.
Off Track Roads: Off-road tracks can be rocky and sandy. Do not drive on any off-road track with a 2x4 vehicle. Off-road tracks are not marked and can be extremely challenging.
