Self Drive South Africa

Take a South African road trip

Cruise along South Africa’s roads surrounded by mountain peaks and stunning coastlines

One of the best things about South Africa is that you can be completely independent and drive yourself from place to place with its easy and safe road network.

Venture out to The Winelands from Cape Town to indulge in world-class wines and fine dining. Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are both just a short drive from the capital, making them easy to combine. Often classed as one of the best scenic drives in the world, the Garden Route is definitely a must in South Africa. Journey along the breath-taking stretch between Mossel Bay and Storm River stopping off to go whale watching or explore the Cango Caves. Dotted with lakes, beaches, national parks and coastal towns, travel at your own pace as you take in the truly beautiful landscapes.

Why not finish off your spectacular self drive with an exhilarating safari in Kruger National Park
