Guides Self-drive Safaris

The guided self-drive safaris are unique in the sense that we have chosen some excellent routes and destinations. We offer you local knowledge and backup.

You have the adventure of driving your own vehicle, giving you more independence and your own space, but with the security and camaraderie of travelling with a small group in a convoy.

Our guided self-drive safaris are perfect for the traveller that seeks adventure but lacks awareness and experience of the area. All these safaris have some 4×4 trails and will take us on the road less travelled. We offer our bush skills and passion for these remote routes.  You have the reassurance of a professional guide along with a backup system in place. We take satellite phones on our guided safaris. Our guided vehicles will communicate and brief you on a daily basis.

Mobile Safari:


Budget Mobile Safaris

A mobile safari is essentially a privately guided safari where you will travel as one unit with your Professional Guide and camp assistant in a private safari vehicle with a fully equipped trailer. This allows you to experience the adventure of bygone days, traveling through diverse areas, witnessing the transformation as the landscapes change and different habitats meet. Your itinerary is pre‐planned in accordance with your time frame and interests.

We have opted to remain affordable, offering comfortable safaris that allow those who are genuinely interested in wildlife and preserving the ecology of this unique part of the world. Our safaris are low impact on the environment, no heavy trucks and no generators. You travel with a guide and camp assistant who take care of all camp chores, guests get to focus on game viewing and being immersed in nature far from life’s normal hectic pace.
