Safari in style
The option of a self-drive holiday in Botswana is not for the faint-hearted travellers. The driving could be challenging as you traverse the National Parks, but you will enjoy the freedom of discovering the country at your own pace and time. The excitement never ends as each route is completely different – if you are the Indiana Jones type of traveller and are confident about driving a 4×4 in thick sand, changing tyres and have a basic knowledge of mechanics, then this is your opportunity to live the dream!
The most popular option is to hire a 4 x4 vehicle either in Botswana, Namibia or South Africa and drive across these countries on a self- catering camping basis or by staying at lodges (different meals options are available as well as activities) along the way.
For those who still want to experience the freedom and excitement of a road trip but do not feel that confident while driving 4 x 4, a driver/guide can be hired if available. This service will increase the cost of your safari but you will also benefit from all the knowledge and expertise local guides have,
With all self-drive holidays options it is highly recommended that guests plan the route well in advance and make pre-bookings – especially when campsites inside the National Park are part of the itinerary. Space is limited and the demand is high! Due to the regulation of the parks, visitors can enjoy a day trip but can’t overnight without a booking.
Designing this exciting holiday for you will cover booking your campsites and 4×4 vehicles, organizing required permits to access the Parks and recommending the best routing according to the time of the year
