Car Rental was from Asco Car Hire in Windhoek.
They arrange pick up from the airport and drop off on return. The service we received was excellent. When you collect the car you watch a short safety video regarding driving in Namibia and particularly the gravel roads.
You then go through all paperwork and then you get to see how all equipment supplied with your vehicle operates and a few tips from the staff.
Accommodation was mostly booked through the Namibia Wildlife Resorts,NWR, a government organisation and part of the tourism initiative. The campsites were reasonable standard varying from excellent facilities to drop toilets etc.
There are other campsites out with NWR that can be booked by yourselves easily just by searching online or in some cases we had people just turn up on spec to camp.
There are plenty alternatives for wild camping particularly in the north of Namibia.
