Tips for traveling to Africa
There are many things to consider when planning your trip to Africa. Budget, time of year to travel, countries to visit and an endless list of other things. However, all this preparation is worth it: once you arrive at your destination you will see that each and every one of the minutes invested have been worth it.
Are you looking to drive thousands of kilometers in a 4×4, to see a traditional African tribe first hand, to surf the Atlantic Ocean in search of the perfect wave, to see the “Big Five” on safari, to relax on a beach with a glass of wine in your hand, to relax on the beach with a glass of wine in your hand?
Africa offers a wide range of activities and it is impossible to do them all in one trip. It is therefore advisable to have an idea of what you want to visit in the continent and the experiences you want to experience during your days there.
Although in most cases you do not need a special visa for less than 90 days, there are countries that have stricter regulations. From Rhino Africa we can inform you about the situation of each destination and tell you the best way to get the travel permit.

When planning your trip to Namibia the first thing you should check with your Rhino Africa consultant is whether it is better to use charter flights or drive around Namibia. In this section we provide the advantages and disadvantages of both options.The advantages of flying in Namibia.
The most obvious advantage of driving in Namibia is the affordability as, compared to flying, driving allows you to explore Namibia at a fraction of the cost. The scenery in Namibia is spectacular and by traveling by road you will be able to fully immerse yourself in the landscape, discover places off the beaten tourist track and really appreciate Namibia at your own pace.The disadvantages of driving in Namibia.
Let’s be honest, renting a vehicle, driving in the desert, in the middle of nowhere, with no phone coverage and loneliness can be a bit intimidating. Renting a vehicle is not for the faint hearted and only certain people enjoy it. In general, roads are not well maintained and traveling between popular tourist destinations requires traveling long distances in a day, which consumes precious time to enjoy the country. We recommend consulting with your Rhino Africa consultant before deciding to travel by road. Traveling by road is time consuming and requires a week or more to enjoy your Namibia vacation.
How to travel through Africa
For us, Africa is something else. Another world. The most different continent of all. For the good, the incredible and the wonderful… but also for the bad. Traveling in Africa has broken all our schemes, it forces us to adapt to another environment, another speed and another way of doing things. To a completely different way of living and feeling them.
As we were saying, Africa works at a different pace and, possibly, it is not the pace you had imagined. Many things will go wrong, fatal or worse. The maps will not coincide with the roads you will find, your GPS will almost never have coverage and you will possibly get lost a thousand and one times. You will end up sleeping in a salt desert, among a million stars, or in a forest warming yourself by a campfire.
You will see how your car, your clothes and your backpack will be covered with dust and dirt five minutes after washing them. Orange sand that refuses to come out of your shoes, even though it’s been more than a week since you ran down Dune 7. Everything will be full of the sand of the dunes of the Namib Desert, the sand that covers the granite peaks of Spitzkoppe, the sand that you will see on the roads of Moremi National Park or in Etosha. And, perhaps, then, you will not feel so different from the Himba women who use that reddish earth to cover their bodies, to braid their hair. Or the elephants, who smear themselves with mud every chance they get to resist the high temperatures and protect their thick skin from the sun.
