South Africa is made for exploring by car. With excellent road networks even a 4×4 is not absolutely essential, even if you are visiting a game reserve or staying at a safari lodge. One of the most Road Trips is from Cape Town to Cape Winelands and along the Garden Route. This journey encompasses dramatic scenery of mountains, vineyards, arid (karoo) desert, bush and seashore. Try Route 62 to experience all of this. For more adventurous drivers, then the Kruger National Park offers you the opportunity to be your own safari guide, whilst strictly keeping to the tarred and gravel roads.
A self-drive journey in Namibia is an ideal adventure, exploring the country’s natural highlights, from its rich wildlife areas to its charming coastal towns and the wonders of the Namib Desert. It’s fun, the roads are in good condition and it is the cheapest and most popular option. With the freedom to explore this extremely vast and beautiful country, there are plenty of sights to break up your journey. And if you want the services of a guide, then most lodges can organise guided game viewing in 4×4 vehicles, scenic flights and dune adventures.
A typical self-drive tour of Namibia is two weeks
Drive slowly to keep you safe on Africa's dirt roads
Allow plenty of time for relaxation in each lodge - sundowner time!
Fill up on petrol whenever you have the chance & ask your lodge for a packed lunch to take with you when you leave
Combine self-drive with scenic light aircraft flights to fully appreciate the landscapes
Stop at the Waterholes in Etosha, park in the shade and wait for the game to come to you
