Tourists are allowed to use their vehicle in Southern Africa without paying any import fees. A Carnet de Passage is required! This can be issued, for example, from your domestic automobile club.

Mobile and smartphones work all over the countries. It makes sense to buy a local SIM card. Almost all campsites, fast food restaurants, etc. offer their customers free Wi-Fi.

Southern Africa offers an excellent infrastructure for traveling in a motorhome.


The supply of diesel is not a problem in Southern Africa & Namibia. AdBlue is available at some places. Fuel prices are about 30% less than in Central Europe. Motorhomes built in South Africa are based on the Mercedes Sprinter, Fiat Ducato & Iveco.

We can provide you with information for filling propane bottles and tanks. The voltage is the same as in Europe. Power plugs can be purchased in South Africa.
