Expect our Namibia trip to be expedition. Some of the nights we will spend in the roof tents. Sometimes we will have to use camping equipment to prepare our meals.
Camping equipment for 4 people includes:
2 double roof tents with mattresses
1x 40l fridge
1x table and 4 chairs
2x gas cylinders with burner
1x grill grate
1x lamp 12 V
2x materace sheet
Sleeping bag and pillow case per person (chemically washed)
For your own comfort, I recommend buying a bed sheet.
Please inform if you take your own sleeping bag.
1 x box with kitchen ware: coffee mugs, water cups, cutting board, bowls, can opener, bread knife, small knife, cutlery, bottle opener, pots, pan, plates, a kettle, a bowl for washing, detergent, rubber, it is worth to buy a dishwashing sponge.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO TAKE OR BUY STRONG, 240 LITER WASTE BAGS (2 per person). Matches or lighter are also useful. I assume that some of us would like to have a chilled wine/beer in our fridge (one of better ideas while offroad:)). It’s good to take a bottle protection nest from airport duty free area – it will prevent bottles from breaking. The very first operation at the first stop is usually cleaning the refrigerator from … glass splinters. 


Clothes and shoes

Wear greens, browns and khakis. Take fleece (can be cold at night), long sleeve shirt ot T-shirts, also long trousers. A light jacket is a great idea for an extra layer. Although rain is not expected – fog can be an issue on the Atlantic coast. On the way from Namib Desert to Swakopmund temperature may drop from 30° to 15° Celsius. Along the coast – Cape Cross (seals) included – expect a wet fog. In all other places short pants and short sleeve shirt is a good idea during the day. Please protect yourself against the sun. Cover your head and make a good use of sun glasses. Shoes. Go for flip flops, while using the shower facilities. As we will spend a lot of time in the vehicles comfortable shoes are crucial. In Namib Desert, on the Skeleton Coast and while visiting Sun people sports shoes or ankle boots are required.

How to avoid mosquito bites

1. Mosquitoes are most active after dusk, so wearing long sleeves and full length pants and light coloured clothing discourages mosquitoes from landing on you.
2. Apply mosquito repellent especially to your hands, feet and ankles. ‘Peaceful Sleep’ and ‘Tabard’ are the most effective and easy to come by in Namibia, however I always buy a strong (97% of DEET) repelent before I go (here). Mosquitoes really don’t like it!
3. Burn insect repellent sticks or spirals in your accommodation.
4. Try to sleep under a mosquito net if possible – usually provided by your host however you can buy mosquito nets which you can carry with you in the event that you would like the comfort of knowing you are taking all the precautions. If you are sleeping in a tent, make sure there is mosquito gauze across windows and doors.


Expect the price of 1 liter gas to be around EUR 0,70 – EUR 0,80. Fuel consumption should not cross the 12 to 15 liters per 100 km. For our route, which is ca. 3000 Km we won’t need more than 400 liters. Our vehicles are equiped with double fuel tanks with total capacity of 140 liters. Remember one of the important rules while traveling in Africa is saying: “refuel if you have chance to do it”.


Namibia its not Botswana, so even in camps you can charge your electric appliances. It makes sense sometimes to use a car inverter. Namibia uses type D/M electrical plugs and you should buy a couple of those in advance. Here you can find information about electric sockets in Namibia.

Comunication between cars

I have ordered CB radio for each vehicle (additional charge of 60 NAD per day per car).

Other accessories

Dont forget your camera, extra memory cards and batteries, equipment charger, tripod and remote shutter releaser. Protect your equipment from dust! Take also head flashlight with extra batteries. Important! With two exceptions we won’t stay at unfenced camps during this expedition.
The first one by the entrance to the Namib Desert, the second in Damaraland. In Damaraland please try to use the toilet in the evening, so there is no need to get off the tent at night. If it’s not possible – please supply your car with ca. 2 – 2.5 m garden hose and depending on your personal needs … funnel :)). Although it sounds like a joke, we use it in the most wild areas of Africa (Zimbabwe, Mali, Botswana). You can meet predator by leaving the tent at night there:). In Namibia there is generally no danger, but i feel obliged to mention it.
