Self-drive

November 8, 2023

An independent (self-drive) tour is one of the best and most affordable ways to explore Southern Africa. Travel at your own pace. Explore as you wish. It's more about the journey than the destination. Make it the self-drive journey of a lifetime.

One of the most enjoyable and flexible ways to explore Namibia is to hire a car and drive yourself to the remote destinations. You can take your time, stop along the way and change your itinerary at short notice. The road network is excellent, well sign-posted and traffic is very light. Most of your motoring is done on well-graded gravel roads. See all our self-drive safari options.

While we can certainly arrange car hire for an adventurous self-drive tour to Botswana, Zambia and Victoria Falls these are best served as fly-in safari or guided safari destinations. However, sections of your safari may well include a self-drive option so talk to your Travel Expert about the best options for combining a self-drive tour with a fly-in or guided safari.
