Botswana

Botswana is the perfect self-drive country! With your 4×4 you can experience a real African adventure here by travelling straight across the game reserves.

Driving off-road with your 4×4 via tracks through the bush. Camping in the middle of the wilderness in between Africa’s wild animals. It’s all possible with a self-drive through Botswana! In some places you will have to wade through water or course through deep sand. Botswana is a country where a 4×4 definitely feels at home. Self-drive road trips to Botswana mostly start in Johannesburg (South Africa), Windhoek (Namibia) or in Botswana itself. It is popular to start and end in Kasane, not far from Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe) and Livingstone (Zambia). An alternative starting point for a self-drive journey is Maun, located centrally near the Okavango Delta, the Moremi Game Reserve and also the Central Kalahari Game Reserve.

Highlights Botswana

Botswana has a lot of national parks, each one a little different than the others! Your self-drive trip to Botswana will be all about wildlife and also game drives with you 4×4 vehicle. Chobe National Park, Moremi Game Reserve and Central Kalahari Game Reserve are the biggest and most popular national parks. No doubt you will spot the Big Five in there! From Maun you can visit the Okavango Delta and the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans. With the 4×4 you can cross the desolate Nwetwe Pan and camp on the remarkable Kubu Island. You can also visit the The Okavango Delta Pan Handle in Northwest Botswana & the Caprivi Strip (Namibia). When you start in Johannesburg you can easily visit the Tuli Block and also the Khama Rhino Sanctuary on your road trip to Botswana. Here you can spot the rare white rhino!

We would recommend Selfdrive4x4.com to our friends

We booked a last minute 17 day self drive trip through Namibia with this company and everything was just perfect. Contact with the company was very pleasant and they kept us posted with updates about the progress of our trip. Gps, maps, book and 12V equipment was sent to our home as soon as our trip was confirmed.

Price wise it was a great deal and everything in Namibia (car and layovers) were to our satisfaction. We would definitely book again with this company and we would recommend it to our friends.
