Once almost so inaccessibly tucked away in the far south-western reaches of Sub-Saharan Africa that the remainder of the world hardly knew it existed, Namibia today is well-connected to neighbouring countries and, through direct international flights, also to western Europe. Via hubs in the EU and South Africa, travellers from around the globe can reach Namibia easily, any day of the week.


Since becoming an independent republic in 1990, Namibia plays an active role in the growing co-operation between countries in the Southern African Region. Multi-lateral agreements aiming at unified approaches and standardisation in an increasing number of fields brought numerous advantages to the development of tourism across the region.

The broad picture: Travelling across Southern Africa from east to west or vice versa, on a Cost-to-Coast Highway connecting
Mozambique, South Africa, Botswana and Namibia, is already possible. Crossing borders still requires adhering to the individual country's visa and immigration regulations but formalities have been greatly reduced for holiday visitors from many different countries of origin. This applies to overland travelling as much as by air, since most larger car rental companies based in the region responded to the countries' alleviated import conditions. Most of their rental vehicles are permitted to be taken across these borders with little to no additional paper work, and insurance cover is made available for the entire route.

The establishment of Peace Parks across shared borders and making them accessible

      from either side is yet another giant step in opening up the ultimate

 treasure chest for the nature enthusiast - Southern Africa.
