You don’t have to be a 4x4 pro to do a desert tour. There are sev­eral op­er­a­tors that of­fer tours of the Namib last­ing four to six days and rang­ing in price from R7 000 to R8 250 per adult. (Most op­er­a­tors of­fer half-price rates for kids un­der 12.)

The rate in­cludes two guide ve­hi­cles and trained tour lead­ers with the nec­es­sary 4x4 qual­i­fi­ca­tions, con­ces­sion fees, three meals a day and a two-way ra­dio for your ve­hi­cle. You have to bring your own 4x4 (some op­er­a­tors can ar­range one for you for about R2 000 ex­tra per day), fuel (about 180 litres of diesel or 280 litres of petrol), camp­ing gear, fish­ing per­mits, wa­ter and drinks.

There are sim­i­lar 4x4 ad­ven­tures in the Kaokoland and Kunene dis­tricts.
