The most fantastic aspect of a Self-Drive Safari is you have the freedom to travel off the beaten track through elegant savannas, stunning passes and landscapes draped in raw rugged beauty that can only be seen by road.  It is the best way to get the feel of the country and experience the true wilderness and desert essence.  Additionally, you get to experience some of Southern Africa’s oldest cultures and a glimpse of the extraordinary lives these remote communities lead. 

One country that has positioned itself beautifully as a self-drive paradise is Namibia.  With an amazing collection of stunning lodges and campsites strategically located along a well maintained matrix of roads Namibia is the perfect self-drive destination.  We find that Namibia’s greatest attributes is its friendly and hospitable people who go to incredible lengths to ensure your visit is unforgettable.  It is a safe and well organised country with unrivalled scenery so spectacular that you won’t even notice your travelling times.  Namibia’s unique wildlife and authentic ancient tribal cultures that miraculously flourish in these inhospitable desert environments makes it a compelling travel destination.  Botswana Self Drive Safaris and Namibia Self Drive Safaris and Botswana Self Drive Safaris.
