Botswana Self Drive Safaris

Drive yourself WILD...!!

For those of you who are a little more adventurous, or just wish to get a little more up close and personal to their safari, why not consider a Self Drive safari.

We will provide you with fully kitted 4×4 vehicles, which include tents and all camping equipment together with sat phones and sat navigation, loaded with up to date off-road tracks. We can suggest to you a full itinerary including advice on the best places to visit depending on the time of year. Once your itinerary is settled upon we will then book all the camp sites for you in the National Parks.

If you are a relative novice at 4×4 driving or just wish to brush up on your skills and familiarise yourself with the terrain out here, we also offer a days tuition in the Moremi National Park. Please see the tab “Driving Conditions” for further details.

Our base of operations is in the safari capital of Maun, Botswana, where our vehicles normally start their journey. However, we can arrange for collection and drop-off of vehicles from Kasane, Gaborone, Windhoek, Vic falls, Harare, Livingstone and Johannesburg.

Undertaking a self drive safari with Safari Lifestyles is an adventurous and affordable way to experience the thrills of this country and its neighbours, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Please browse the information in the tabs below and contact us for your requirements.
