A Self-Drive Safari

Take the wheel.

A self-drive safari is a more independent and rewarding way of travelling Africa, generally for those who seek a little adventure. They make great memories and are well suited for families, adventurers and even honeymooners!

Where?

Namibia is a very good and generally easier destination to self-drive. Botswana, Zimbabwe & Zambia are fantastic destinations too, but more adventurous.

For who?

It's not limited to anyone. That's the beauty. However, generally those who seek a little adventure and like their own independence love it most.

4x4's

I've driven much of Africa myself and love it every time I get in the car and grab the wheel. It's a lot of fun for the right person. You need to not mind things potentially going wrong - that's when it becomes an adventure!

Where do I start...? Namibia.

This country is desert savannah; it has massive dunes, exotic wildlife, a famous coastline and an array of jaw-dropping attractions in every direction.

Namibia is known for being the perfect self-drive safari destination. In fact, most travellers tend to opt for this mode of transport here. The road infrastructure is very good, the people are super friendly and navigating yourself is surprisingly straight forward. On top of this Namibia has an incredible selection of stunning campsites and exciting lodges for you to choose from. It's also lots of fun things for children and adults to do!

Namibia is also a year round destination, there's no bad time to travel.

Benefits of self-drive? Well...

The beauty of having your own vehicle is that you can go anywhere, literally anywhere. You can drive into the remotest corners of countries and camp in some really wild locations.

It's amazing fun and the level of adventure can be dialled from 1 to 10 depending on what you're after. The key is knowing where to go, how to book and knowing who to call if you need support. That's where we step in. Whether you're driving remote in corners of Zambia or down the sandy tracks of Chobe, we know how to set up and operate a top self-drive safari.
