So simple.

The hard bit is the red tape. The Carnet de Passage. Look it up on the RAC web site.

DO NOT ship roll on roll of. Put it in a container.

We used MACS shipping through John Good at Immingham. Where are you in the UK ? As John Good ship out of the Thames.

I've sent you a PM

It will cost more to ship out than back home.

You will have to pay port fees, anticipate £1,000 each way. They may be less but I am working on 2011 prices.

It's expensive to ship out as you will need to put it in a container - only empty cars can go on ro-ro so you can't take any kit & it will have bits pilfered.

Google savannah freight - UK based company who regularly ship to walvis bay and will get you container pricing.

If you just going for a few weeks it's going to work out cheaper & easier to hire a 4x4 - plenty of companies out there offering fully kitted out 4x4's with roof tents/fridges/camping gear etc in Windhoek, or johannesburg is worth looking at too.

Couple of names you can look at just for an idea - bobo campers in windhoek/joburg hire 4x4 campers, british 4x4 in Pretoria hire kitted out Defenders, drive South Africa do very smart Defender rental - lots and lots of others.

Hello,

I am not sure but wouldn´t it be much easier to go to Namibia by plane and then rent a Rover at place? I think this would also9 benefit you with much less organizing for your trip to Namibia
