Botswana, Namibia and South Africa have become the preferred destinations amongst self-drive enthusiasts due to the prime location of the camping areas, the incredible game viewing opportunities and the stunning landscapes all countries offer. Self-drive itineraries offer two available travel options:
• The most exciting alternative is to choose the complete camping experience whilst driving yourself; in this case, a fully equipped 4×4 vehicle providing camping gear is necessary: tents, sleeping bags, camping gas, crockery etc. You will overnight at designated public camping areas inside the National Parks or inside some Private Concessions. You must be ready for the sandy tracks, water crossings, and most frequently, the lack of any direction signal on the paths.
• The softer alternative is choosing to stay at lodges and still feel the excitement when driving between destinations. If this is your choice, a 4×4 is still required, but no camping equipment is needed. Please, note accommodations are limited to the tented camps or lodges that are reachable by road and allow self-drivers (especially in Botswana). You will be able to enjoy all the facilities of the tented camp.
