Botswana is the perfect self-drive country. You can experience a real Africa adventure here by travelling straight across the game reserves.

Driving off-road with the 4×4, tracks through the bush of Botswana, camping in the middle of nature and Africa’s wild animals: it’s all possible on a Self-Drive of Botswana. You will travel across sandy 4×4 tracks from the safari camp to other game reserves in Botswana. In some places you will have to wade through water or course through deep sand. Botswana is a country where a 4×4 feels at home.

On Selfdrive4x4.com you can book various self-drive 4×4 package deals, including National Park reservations for, say, Chobe National Park and the Moremi Game Reserve. We also offer various single rent 4×4 car deals in Botswana.
Self-drive journeys to Botswana can start with the car rental in Johannesburg (to which it is cheap to fly and rental prices are low) or in Botswana itself. It is popular to start and end in Kasane, at the Chobe River banks, 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 the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. You can also start and end in Windhoek (Namibia) or Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe).

From Maun (Botswana) you can also visit the Makgadikgadi Salt Pan. With the 4×4 you can cross the desolate salt pans and camp on the remarkable Kubu Island. These salt pans can also be incorporated into a journey starting (or ending) in Johannesburg. On the road to Botswana you can then also visit the Tuli Block and the Khama Rhino Sanctuary, where you can see 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.
