Travel ideas for Independent Travel in Africa

There’s nothing quite like doing it your way. We do the planning, you enjoy the ride.

Self-Drive South Africa’s Kruger Park

Self-Drive South Africa’s Kruger Park

You and your friends amongst the Big Five.

Self-Drive South Africa’s Kruger Park

One of Africa’s greatest national parks, lions, elephants, and leopards roaming around. And you game-drive in your own car? That’s right. Respect nature, respect the wildlife and you’ll have your very own safari experience. You can opt to join a game-drive organised by your lodge if you want. Lean back and soak in the local knowledge of your guide.

Why we love Self-Drives in Kruger Park:

Besides the ease with which you can connect with Africa’s great wildlife, its location allows for further travels along the Panorama Route or to the Drakensberg Mountains.

Self-Drive Trips in Namibia

A country like no other. A trip like no other.

Self-Drive Trips in Namibia

Who would have thought: a country of deserts and deserted landscapes a destination for self-drivers? You bet. Its overall safety for travellers, many guesthouses and literally straight-forward road network have made Namibia popular amongst road-trippers. You should be a safe driver as distances are long.

Why we love Self-Drive Trips in Namibia:

It gives you the opportunity to experience something so new, so unlike anything you’ve ever known – on your own terms and at your own pace.

Self-Drive along the Garden Route

Self-Drive along the Garden Route

So much more than your standard route.

Self-Drive along the Garden Route

Arguably one of the most popular routes to self-drive South Africa, the Garden Route unveils so many hidden secrets – if you know where to look. Scenic nature trails and small restaurants, we’ll share our favourites with you. While not part of its core 300km-stretch, visit beautiful Cape Town and Addo Elephant Park for your city and wildlife fix.

Why we love the Garden Route:

It’s such an accessible and welcoming stretch of coastline. You don’t need to be well-travelled to feel confident enough to drive it yourself.

Your team really know their way around southern Africa and individually tailor the right trip for their guests.
