    Default Self Drive Roadtrip to Namibia With my Dog

    Hi All!

    I am trying to plan a road trip to the Southern half of Namibia with my girlfriend and dog (Rhodesian Ridgeback).

    I am really struggling to find pet friendly self catering accommodation and/or camp sites.

    Does anyone know of a directory to find pet friendly accommodation in Namibia and/or does anyone have an itinerary they have used with a dog that i can merely copy?

    Would love any suggestions of places to go, don't know Namibia too well, and pet friendly places to stay.

    Would appreciate any assistance!!

    Cheers,

    My dog has gone with on almost every trip/drive I did in the last 11 years (as most of the members that know me know), but it's not always easy, especially with large breeds. Let me listen around a bit and get back to you. What areas were you planning on visiting or what was your original idea?

    Bartho, jeez this is a classic one. Good for you.

    2623394, welcome to the forum and Namibian humour. I cannot help you with your request but I am sure somebody will be able to help you. If all else fails, contact Johan Snyman (forum member) and ask him. He wrote many books about travelling in Nam and if he cannot help you, you will not get help anywhere else.

    Thanks for the advise and being willing to assist! ... I don't really have a plan yet, still early days in the planning process. For now I will take any recommended sites and spots. Would prefer to stay below Windhoek though. Thanks again

    Just be aware that you will not be allowed into any national parks with a dog. That rules out Sossus Vlei and the Naukluft.
