Drive-in Safaris

- denoting a place or activity which is reached using a vehicle.

Take to the open road with a private vehicle and driver-guide. Drive-in safaris offer ultimate flexibility and offer especially good value for groups of friends or family travelling together. Depending on the destination we use a variety of vehicles to get you from A to B, from custom safari pop top mini vans to 4WD vehicles. Driving gives you the chance to see small villages and local communities as well as being able to explore the highlights of the country you are visiting. Another huge benefit is your driver-guide. We use English-speaking local guides who can tell you about the history and culture of the region as well as the flora and fauna - many of these guides have been working with Real Africa for years and many of our repeat clients request the same driver-guide time and again.
