The standard vehicle used for this tour is a 4 door 4x4 Ford Ranger or Isuzu D-Max or similar. Mostly likely automatic.

The route is planned largely avoiding main roads, however, there will be some tar as well as plenty of dirt, gravel, some sand and rough

Activity Level
This trip is not physically demanding as any walking activity is usually optional. There are walks available from 1-2km to longer and a trekking pole is recommended if you have some difficulty on rough terrain or stairs.

The wildlife ("game") will be in pockets along the route. The main game viewing areas are Etosha, Waterberg Plateau and Palmwag Concession.

Meals included are daily breakfasts and 4 dinners. You will self cater for lunches and you can stock the vehicle with most of the items you would normally have access to at home. The  shopping in Windhoek is particularly good and we will have other opportunities to restock along the way. Most of the lodges will have a "buffet" dinner and if we are in towns like Swakopmund there are many restaurants available.

March is Autumn in Namibia. Like everywhere in the world it is hard to predict exactly what the weather will be. It is the end of the wet season moving into the dry season, so there may be the occasional shower. We would expect the average daytime temperatures of 27-30 °C and around lS °C at night (or colder on the coast depending on the wind direction).
