Africa Self-Drive Holidays to Last a Lifetime

Many beautiful and unique holiday destinations in Africa are only accessible by four wheel drive. True, a normal sedan or SUV can take a tourist on many highways, byways and fascinating places of interest, but Africa being the place that it is, calls for a 4X4 when "unrestricted enjoyment" is on the agenda. We at African Sky Safaris & Tours understand the geography, including major routes, sights and attractions both in SA and other popular African destinations. So when it comes to you planning and getting the most out of your Africa self-drive holidays, you can definitely rely on our experienced team.

Africa self-drive holidays allow the traveller to either drive with his own vehicle or as a passenger in another 4X4. The tour itself may be completely guided, or if you are more adventurous, and slightly more familiar with travel in Africa, you can navigate through one or more planned routes with trip monitoring, telephonic assistance and milestone pit stops. Either way, Africa Self-drive Holidays make remote and often untouched parts accessible, allowing you to experience divergent landscapes and interact with different cultures with their unique lifestyles and languages.

Botswana for instance, like SA, is also a popular destination for Africa self-drive holidays. Travelling by 4X4 will allow you to experience the magnificent salt pans and navigate the waterways and crossings at Chobe or in the Okavango Delta. Many roads in fact, both in Botswana and Namibia are sandy and a park like Koudom can only be truly enjoyed with a four wheel drive vehicle. The Kgalagadi National Park in South Africa is now a Transfrontier park spanning both South Africa and Botswana, and thus also makes for a fantastic Africa self-drive holiday, seeing that you can also access the Botswana Park from the South Africa side. One vehicle is sufficient, but two or more vehicles in convoy are preferable in terms of transporting supplies and in the event of a breakdown.

When embarking on Africa Self-drive Holidays, guests have the choice of camping, self-catering accommodation or possibly lodges based on availability. The outdoor camping option is still a firm favourite for many, due to the 'rustic' experience. Imagine a camp set up with only the few vehicles of the group, no other campers nearby, no commerce - just nature and you. This is not everybody's cup of tea, but for nature lovers this is sheer "bliss". Wake up to the sounds of birds; hear the roar of a lion during the night, maybe a hyena, jackal or various other interesting wildlife!
