South Africa Self-drive Safaris

South Africa Self-drive Safaris

South Africa is an incredible self-drive destination, for numerous reasons. For starters, it’s safe – roads are in excellent condition, with brilliant infrastructure, an extensive road network, and well-posted English road signs making sure you won’t get lost.

Car hire rates are competitive, and because almost all of your driving is on paved roads, excesses waivers are lower than the rugged neighbours up north (like Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia). And if you’re from the UK, you won’t even have to switch from driving on the left to the right – South Africans do as the English do. Plus, you’ll find great accommodation wherever you go.

But even more importantly, self-driving here offers unparalleled freedom and independence, and gives you access to a whole new world. Delivering spell-binding scenery that takes you from buzzing Cape Town and through the lush Cape Winelands, over dramatic mountain passes, along 300km of scenic coastline that makes up the world-renowned Garden Route, and on to the thriving wildlife in the Kruger National Park, driving in South Africa is described by many as the road trip of a lifetime.
