The vehicle is an important part of your self-drive holiday. Especially for a camping trip, this is the case because your car is like your own 'home'. In most cases we recommend a 4x4, but one chooses to travel on the majority of the (limited) asphalt-roads, then renting a sedan is also a good alternative.

For all vehicles is that they are well maintained and not older than 2 ½ years.

Explore Botswana assures that all vehicles are in perfect conditions and that an excellent back-up is guaranteed in case something turns out wrong. This allows you to enjoy your holiday in beautiful unspoilt Botswana and southern Africa.

Explore Botswana uses the services of the Car Rental Association of Namibia (CARAN).

All these 4x4 vehicles are technically adapted to the often harsh African roads and therefore well suited for both the asphalt and the gravel roads in Namibia. Thus, these 4x4 vehicles include following:Toyota Landcruiser 4x4
