Dates are flexible – Trips are tailor-made to individual requirements to include more or less camping as preferred.

4×4 self-driving is, without doubt, one of the most experiential forms of travel you will find and accessible to just about everyone. If you are new to this, or would like to improve your skills, Driver Training is recommended. It’s fun, educational and well worthwhile. This superb itinerary has been designed to include a range of accommodation and experiences – perfect for those wanting to incorporate some comfort and style into the trip. Lodges don’t just provide the luxury of a bed, but also the expertise of qualified, professional guides who will find the best sightings and explain the animal behavior you will see. Camping retains the sense of adventure you only get when sleeping under the stars.

You will see widely contrasting landscapes and ecosystems which provide habitat to a great variety of Africa’s most well-known creatures, such as the Big 5, Giraffe, Zebra, Kudu, Impala and Warthog, as well as lesser known animals including the Red Lechwe and Sitatunga Antelope, Brown Hyena and endearing Meerkat, as well as prolific birdlife that flourish in the vast, protected wilderness here.
