General Queries

Can we get the vehicle from the airport and how far is your office from the airport?

Aloe car hire will fetch you, free of charge, from the airport and bring you to the office in Windhoek. It takes about 45 minutes.

Can I depart from Windhoek the first day of my arrival?

I you depart after 12 PM we do prefer that you rather stay in Windhoek for the first night. It takes about 1 hour to get out of the airport building, then another 1 hour drive to Windhoek and approximately 2 hours to do the car handover and paperwork. If you need to buy food you can add another hour.

Meaning at this stage it will be nearly dark already and you are not allowed to drive in the dark from Windhoek to another city (COVID-19 regulations).

Does Aloe 4x4 Car Hire charge cross border fees and contract fees?

NO, we do not charge the above fees. Clients who want to cross the borders need to inform Aloe car hire in order to receive a cross border letter, which without you will not be able to cross any border of Namibia.

Do I need to have an international driving licence?

We require that you have an international driving licence, but if your foreign driving licence is in English is it perfect to use in Namibia.


What is included in the camping equipped vehicle?

There is a camping equipment checklist which you will find on our website, which states exactly what is included in your price.

The roof top tents have fixed mosquito nets attached on the inside of the tents.
