Self drive is a hugely popular way of exploring many African countries, offering total freedom and complete privacy. The most popular place to self-drive is South Africa, where good roads, and driving on the left, make it a natural place to drive at your own pace, leaving you free to stop off where you like, to take in particularly impressive views, restaurants or shops. We can offer a range of vehicles, from economic saloons to four-wheel-drives able to tackle the harshest terrain.
Self drive is also an excellent option in Namibia, where four-wheel-drives are usually recommended for the dirt roads that stretch through its sweeping desert landscapes. There are a number of shorter self drive itineraries through the Okavango Delta in Botswana that offer an fantastic safari experience. With rugged four-wheel drive vehicle at your disposal you will negotiate sandy tracks, open plains and the odd rickety breidge. The wildlife viewing is exceptional, the lodges superb.
We will invariably have driven the routes personally and can provide detailed itineraries and book accommodation for you along the way.
