4×4 Self drive 10 day itinerary through South Africa

“This is a great adventure, travelling up the West Coast of South Africa and visiting iconic destinations in southern Namibia”

Collect your vehicle today and start your journey up the west coast of South Africa. Depending on the time of year you travel, the route is a rainbow of colours when the wild flowers of Namaqualand bloom.

Travel as far north as Springbok, where where we recommend  you stay at Naries Namaqualand Lodge.

An early start to the day and you’ll be crossing the border from South Africa into Namibia. In general the border crossings are an easy affair, but depending on the time of year, and if the locals are on holiday, it could be a bit drawn out.

Continue on to the Fish River Canyon where two nights accommodation will be arranged for you at Fish River Lodge.

We’ve included a half day morning hike into the program this morning so that you can experience a bit of this iconic area.

Today you continue going north to the history filled town of Aus. It’s a tiny town filled with history, and on walks in the area you are still able to see evidence of the war that took place between the Germans and the South African national forces. There is also remnants of a Prisoner of War camp.

Accommodation is arranged for you at Klein-Aus Desert Horse Inn, which is located just outside the town on the side of a hill, where all the chalets have views of the changing Namibian landscape.

Today is a great day of sightseeing. You can start by stopping at Kolmanskop, which is a ghost town that has become a living museum. Continue on to the coastal town of Luderitz. The German influence is very strong here, from architecture to food and it’s a lovely place.

En-route back to your accommodation, you pass by the viewpoint for the wild horses of Aus. Late afternoon is usually a good time to stop off as you may be lucky enough to see them at the man-made drinking hole.

Travel from Aus to the Namib Naukluft National Park. It’s typical Namibian dirt road all the way, so be sure to travel carefully.

Accommodation will be arranged for you at the Hoodia Desert Lodge where you will spend the next two nights with breakfast and dinner included.

This morning is an early start but it’s well worth it. An excursion will be arranged for you with the lodge to the famous Sossusvlei. You could drive yourself, but the last bit of the route is for experienced 4×4 drivers only.

Return back to the lodge in the late afternoon.

Today you travel to Swakopmund on the west coast of Namibia. Be sure to stop off at Solitaire, where they claim to bake the best apple pie in Namibia.

On arrival in Swakopmund, spend the afternoon relaxing and getting to know the town.

Today is an adventure of contrasts. After a short visit to Walvis Bay, we drive south, passing the colorful evaporation fields of the salt works and enjoy an adventurous drive through the majestic dunes and along the sea. The last kilometres to Sandwich Harbour can only be managed at low water level by a very experienced driver. Plenty of fish attracts lake and land birds since the pent-up ground water provides lots of plants to protect their offspring.

On request, we have a lovely picnic in an unspoiled environment with terrific scenes and landscapes as a background. Sand covered ruins from colonial times where Guano was harvested and transported back to Walvis Bay can still be seen. Sandwich Harbour is a paradise for ornithologists and photographers from all over the world.

Our way back leads us through the large Kuiseb delta, also home to many bird species, jackal, brown hyena, springbuck and many more. This tour is truly a great outing.

Spend today at your leisure in and around Swakopmund.

Travel to Windhoek airport today, where you will return your rental vehicle and connect with your flight home.

Self drive holiday as a couple in South Africa

South Africa has an array of adventurous activities that is well suited for two people travelling. Locals are very friendly, and will often go out of their way to make travellers feel at home. Cape Town in particular is suited to those who relish urban attractions, whether it be museums, galleries and theatres, or bars, nightclubs and live music venues. Private game reserves are a popular choice for two people than national parks and other public sanctuaries, since they tend to offer a more hands-on, personalised service.

Most backpacker hostels have lively communal areas where it’s easy to meet other travellers, and they usually offer affordable group tours to local sites of interest, as well as overnight tours further afield, for instance from Gauteng to the Kruger National Park or Cape Town to the Winelands. Most travellers opt for a self-drive adventure around the country.

Self drive holiday for 4 people

South Africa is ideal for visitors travelling in a groups of four. Most travellers opt for exploring the country by self-drive. This will afford you with the opportunity to visit areas like the Garden Route, Kruger Park and iSimangaliso, which are ideal for self-drive exploration.

A few days self-driving in the Kruger Park or similar would be an ideal starting point, followed possibly by some time driving along the coast between Port Elizabeth and the Cape.

On your self-drive, make sure to alternate drive responsibilities. Add the road less travelled regions like the Karoo the Northern Cape or the parts of the West Coast to your driving itinerary. Exploring sites of significance like the SALT telescope in Sutherland or the West Coast National Park by bicycle can be truly memorable.

Self drive holiday for a family in South Africa

South Africa is probably the most family-friendly destination on the continent. The country’s beaches are lined with family-friendly hotels and resorts, while cities such as Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth boast a variety of aquariums, funfairs, waterslide complexes, malls and other attractions suited to children.

The Garden Route is also a very child-friendly region, thanks to its combination of safe swimming beaches and family-oriented sanctuaries such as Monkeyland, Birds of Eden and the ostrich farms around Oudtshoorn. Most children will be enraptured by a few days on safari, but be warned that youngsters often become bored on long game drives so create a mix of beach and bush.

Self-drivers with children should avoid overambitious itineraries. Distances in South Africa are far longer than you might be used to at home, and children might quickly become bored or carsick.

4×4 Self drive holiday for a large group in South Africa

South Africa is the ideal destination for group travel. The country’s beaches are lined with hotels and resorts, while cities such as Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth boast a variety of aquariums, funfairs, waterslide complexes, malls and other attractions suited to any travellers expectations.

Depending on your tastes, interests, age and level of fitness, activities on offer range from week-long rafting excursions along the Orange River as it follows the border between the Northern Cape and neighbouring Namibia, to multi-day coastal hikes such as the world-famous Otter or Oystercatcher Trails. Mountain biking in the remote montane heights of the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg is a highlight, as is an overnight guided wilderness trail looking for wildlife and camping wild in Big Five reserves such as the Kruger National Park or Hluhluwe-Imfolozi. Whilst the Garden Route is renowned for its paragliding courses.
