By car

You may enter Namibia via the border post in Oshikango (Namibia)/Ondjiva (Angola).

As of 2002, the only way in from the north was via Luvo, a tiny hamlet on the Kinshasa-Matadi ‘road.’ Driving across Angola is an unforgettable experience. Off the established path, road conditions may not be what you’re accustomed to, so be prepared, especially during the rainy season, when potholes are likely to be common. Keep an eye out for animals and heavy cars belonging to Angolan citizens.

By boat

As of 2003, it was possible to reach Angola by a small passenger boat from Namibia’s Rundu. An Angolan and a Namibian border officer were also present. The bridge was mostly utilized by Angolans to get food and other goods in Namibia. Ferries operate from the enclave of Cabinda to Luanda (as of 2007), which may be helpful for avoiding the volatile DR Congo. They also transport automobiles. Seek local guidance on when they should leave. According to sources, they operate twice a week, cost $180 per person (bike included), and take 14 hours to complete the journey (2005).

If there are no ferries, there may be cargo aircraft that can transport you (and your vehicle) between Cabinda and Luanda. Be warned: these aircraft are dangerous. You use them at your own risk.
