Nothing beats taking on the open road and exploring all the ins and outs of a destination at your own pace, taking in shifting landscapes and jaw-dropping vistas.
One of Africa’s youngest countries, the stunning landscape of Namibia is best enjoyed on an unforgettable self-drive adventure. Rent a car and cruise by at your own pace as you pass by vast red dunes and crashing waves. There are plenty of empty roads to be explored, but a good place to start is at the Etosha National Park where self-driving is an easy and affordable option. Water is scarce which means large herds of animals congregate around Etosha’s famous waterholes, including black rhinos and flamingos.
A good way to get under the skin of Zimbabwe is to get behind the wheel. With a mixture of scenic landscapes, history, culture and fantastic game viewing, Zimbabwe perfectly lends itself to self-drive discovery. Explore the beautiful Eastern Highlands, the Matobo Hills and the Victoria Falls all at your own pace.
