The Self-Drive Tours, Safaris and Holidays we promote in South Africa offer guests who wish to travel unguided on a self-drive basis an enjoyable alternative. It is very important that such a trip is planned carefully and that the subsequent self-drive itinerary be easy in its execution. We assist with all aspects surrounding your South African self drive tour, including car rental, accommodation, reservations etc. One of our representatives will meet you at the airport and discuss the entire route of your self-drive tour with you. The representative will also present you with detailed maps, as well as with the necessary vouchers.
South Africa is a well-developed country with good primary road infrastructure. The secondary road infrastructure is, however, not always up to standard. When traveling in South Africa, shops, banks and other necessary services are readily available. Credit cards are accepted almost everywhere, which should limit the need to carry large amounts of cash with you. You should, however, always have some cash in the local currency with you, as it might come in handy at some places.
If none of our South Africa Self-Drive Tours, Safaris or Holidays meet your approval, we will gladly tailor-make an itinerary which takes your unique requirements into account. African Sky has been offering self-drive tours in South Africa since 1998.
The South African self-drive tours provided by African Sky can be enjoyed in most regions of the country. Cape Town, the Cape winelands and the Garden Route are areas that lend themselves specifically well to a self-drive tour. In combination with these areas, we also offer self-drive tours which combine the Cape and Kruger areas. Other South African self-drive tour destinations which are easily accessible include the Pilanesberg National Park and Sun City.
Safari areas which are easily accessible on a self-drive basis include the Kruger National Park, as well as Pilanesberg in the northern part of South Africa. In the southern part of the country, the Addo Elephant National Park provides easy access and good infrastructure. There are also various smaller national parks and private game reserves which are easily accessible on a self-drive safari. Upon receiving a request, our able team will provide you with options and suggestions.
In addition to the South African Self-Drive Tours and Safaris we are also able to assist with African self-drive holidays in the countries of Namibia, Botswana and Zambia. It is very important that clients understand the distances and conditions involved. It is also very important that you realize shops, gas stations and other necessary services are often great distances apart and that you will need to carry everything you might need with you.
From 2012 onwards African Sky will be offering a Twenty One Day 4x4 Expedition, where clients self-drive one of our 4x4 vehicles in a convoy of between eight and ten vehicles. Staring in Pretoria, the expedition will explore Botswana, Victoria Falls and Namibia before heading back into South Africa through the Kalahari Desert. The journey will be led by one of our guides in a 4x4 vehicle.
