Directions from Windhoek for Self-drive trips to Etosha:
Plan on spending about six hours in transit from Windhoek to Etosha. The roads are tarmac and in good condition and the journey can easily be made in one day. Even inside the park, an ordinary sedan vehicle is adequate transportation.
Please plan your trip carefully. The entrance gates as well as the camp gates are only open from sunrise to sunset and these times will vary according to the season. Make sure you are aware of the gate times before setting out. Should you arrive outside of these times, you will not be allowed access and will find yourself left out in the African wild for the night!
