Self Drive Safaris in Southern Africa

Southern Africa is perfect for self-drive travellers - especially those who prefer more independence and flexibility, or those on a budget.

People don’t think twice about a self-drive holiday in New Zealand, Canada or the USA, so why not a self-drive safari in southern Africa? Self-drive is something tens of thousands of travellers from the UK and Europe do every year  – and in southern Africa you drive on the same side of the road as in Australia! Read our blog A day in the life of a self-drive safari to get a sense of what a self-drive safari can involve.
