Africa is such an incredibly beautiful place, and with so much to explore and see, it only makes sense to explore Africa by road.
As such, fully equipped self-drive camping safaris have become a popular way of exploring Southern Africa in your own time, focusing on what you want and at relatively low costs.
A self-drive camping trip requires a good deal of planning and preparation. The roads in Southern Africa can be quite challenging, as many are sand or dirt tracks therefore you can expect slower driving conditions. You will often be driving through remote areas, thick sand or deep water so it is important to always carry extra drinking water, fuel and spare wheels.
Campsites within the game reserves and national parks are not fenced (other than in South Africa) so campers must take the necessary precautionary measures to ensure their safety.
