South African Self-drive Tours

Discover the 'world in one country' on an expertly planned self-drive adventure.

For travelers who prefer adventures at their own pace, direction and review, self-drive tours are ideal. However, you need not go it all on your own – African Sky offers a host of itineraries aimed at assisting the independent traveler. We will plan your general route, book your accommodations, flights and rental vehicle. All you have to do is show up for the trip of a lifetime.

Due to the fine infrastructure of the country’s main roads and major national parks, self-driving South Africa is both safe and straightforward. Your rental vehicle will always include a GPS, ensuring that, while you may lose yourself in the spectacular landscapes around you, you’ll always be able to find your way to your destination. We’ll also provide detailed information on attractions and activities relevant to your route, along with useful travel tips and restaurant recommendations.

Vehicles pause alongside African wild dogs spotted in the Kruger National Park.

The most popular self-drive routes include the drive from Johannesburg to the world-famous Kruger National Park, as well as the coastal route between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. If you’re looking to combine both northern and southern highlights, we’ll ensure that some flights are included to minimize long travel distances and maximize time enjoyed at the most sought-after destinations.
