Solo travel experience

Namibia is not particularly favorable for solo travelers. It's a vast desert with often no gas stations, stores, or villages for hundreds of kilometers. Namibia is the second least densely populated country in the world, after Mongolia. Public transportation only operates on the main road and at the borders.
