Note on Cross Border Fees
There are some fairly sizeable cross border and one way drop off fees which need to be settled when collecting the car. We don't include this to keep prices down. But you need to be aware of it (see exclusions). However, rest assured that car rental prices in South Africa are far far cheaper than Namibia and thus to a very large extent the cross-border fee is offset by a lower daily car rental cost. Hope that helps!
As with nearly all our sample itineraries, it can be tailor-made to suit you and your interests and time-frame. If you are up for it why not skip the South African part and rather add a few nights in Botswana.
