The roads within Namibia are actually first class by African standards, a fact that the locals are very proud of. There are nearly 4500km of good tarred roads and an extensive network of gravel roads. Besides South Africa, Namibia has the best road connectivity in the sub region; thus it is perfect for self-drive and safaris. Sedans can cope with the roads connecting all of the major centres but there are certain areas that demand 4x4 vehicles and even then only in convoy. However, one should try to avoid traveling during the rainy season from January to April since many of the roads become flooded and impassable.  

In addition to roads, t here is a fairly extensive rail network in Namibia which connects Windhoek to most of the major towns. However, one should note the trains are very slow. Train journeys should be booked in Windhoek, from where trains run to Keetmanshoop, Ariamsvlei, Tsume, Swakopmund and Walvis Bay.

To be clear, Luxury bus services and a bus service have mostly replaced the old rail services fromWindhoek, Walvis Bay, Swakopmund, Luderitz and other major towns. Minibuses operate along the B1 from Oshakati and Keetmanshoop.

Also there are Domestic air services operate between the major airports Eros Airport, Windhoek (ERS), Rooikop Airport, Walvis Bay (WVB), Swakopmund Airport (SWP), Luderitz Airport (LUD) and Mpacha Airport (MPA). (See flights to Namibia for more info).
