How to Get Started
In order to get involved in a self-drive safari you would need to take a flight to Gaborone in Botswana from wherever you are coming to Africa from. Once you arrive you will be equipped with a 4WD camper which will be your safari vehicle for the number of days you are hoping to spend on the endeavour.
The operators will offer a quick crash course in 4WD if you aren’t comfortable to immediately set out in one.
The 4WD will be equipped with beds, roof-top tents, fridges and cooking equipment so you will be going out into the wild well prepared.
The advantages of travelling on a self-drive safari will be the complete power over your pace. You can pick where you want to go and how long you want to spend there and how much time you plan to take to photograph the plentiful wildlife.
