Self-drive Trips

- a hired vehicle, driven by you.

Self-drive is a great option in South Africa and Namibia. The beautiful weather and good network of roads make self-drive an enjoyable way to explore at a pace that suits you.

The rules of the road are similar to the UK with driving on the left, seatbelts compulsory, drink-driving prohibited and the speed limit on secondary roads set at 100 kmph. Main routes are well sign posted and driving is easy.

We have a wide choice of vehicles suitable for different types of trips and can provide detailed route information to help you explore - our sample self-drives below have been designed to flow, factoring in down-time and incorporating popular stops. These can be modified to suit you.
