Onward travel is either by small aircraft or car. Because of excellent roads and safety in Namibia, many people choose the self-drive option and many international car hire companies such as Avis, Budget and Europcar can provide vehicles from Hosea Kutako International Airport. Please check your proposed travel route before hiring a vehicle as road condition can vary from region to region and are also dependent on the season or travel. 4X4 and 2X4 vehicles are generally good options in which to explore unhindered by gravel/dirt roads, of which there are many, and provide better wildlife viewing due to the raised position.
Should you decide to charter a flight CCF has it’s own airstrip which is suitable for light aircraft, however, we ask that you contact CCF directly before confirming the flight as condition during the wet season can make it unusable.
