Self Drive Holiday


There is nothing better than exploring a beautiful country at your own pace, whilst at the same time having the peace of mind that your accommodation has been booked along the way. Southern Africa has a number of leisurely self drive options that are perfect for anyone who want to be flexible and discover interesting places and attractions. A self drive allows you to venture ‘off the beaten track’ and more often than not, that is where your lasting memories are created.

The benefits of a self-drive holiday

  • Self-drive itineraries allow you to travel at your own pace- that way you dictate your own itinerary as opposed to be herded around in large tour buses on strict timetables.
  • The road network in South Africa is generally excellent and extremely easy to navigate. The most well known self-drive journeys such as the Garden Route often involve only one main artery. With the help of a simple map, you will find it extremely difficult to get lost!
  • Having the use of your own vehicle really allows you to explore the country and get a feel for the place. You will come across dramatic scenery, spectacular mountain passes, quaint villages and friendly people.
  • Hiring a car could not be any simpler- all the big hire-car companies are represented at all the major airports. Alternatively, we can deliver your hire-car to your lodge or hotel.
