Roads in Namibia

Roads in Namibia link most areas of the country, although most are gravelled rather than tarred. Major roads are denoted national routes and numbered, with a prefix "B":

*B1 road: (Angola) - Ondangwa - Tsumeb - Otavi - Otjiwarongo - Okahandja - Windhoek - Reheboth - Mariental - Keetmanshoop - Noordoewer - (South Africa)
*B2 road (Trans Caprivi Highway): Okahandja - Karibib - Swakopmund - Walvis Bay
*B3 road: Grünau - Ariamsvlei - Nakop - (South Africa)
*B4 road: Keetmanshoop - Lüderitz
*B6 road (Trans Kalahari Highway): Windhoek - Gobabis
*B8 road (Trans Caprivi and Trans Calahari Highway): Otavi - Grootfontein - Rundu - Katima Mulilo - (Botswana)

Less important roads are given a two-digit number, with a prefix "C", and minor roads are given a three- or four-digit number, with a prefix "D".
