Naive, sheltered and uninformed as I am I had not heard of a self-drive safari until inveterate mega-travel blogger Lesley Carter mentioned in her blog Bucketlistpublications.org she is doing one.  Follow her travels at her website.  Her first two posts on the safari are:

A quick Google brought this website to my attention:

What REALLY grabbed my attention was the photo diary of a couple who used the SafariDrive service for a six week jaunt.  Amazing photos and explanations.  I encourage you to browse:

BOTSWANA & ZAMBIA

What an incredible journey.  I had no idea you could do this kind of thing in this day and age.  I’m gobsmacked.

  1. Hi John, yup, as a Namibian I can honestly say that it is still possible – check out my blog (A Namibian Travelling Namibia) or the blog of ATI Holidays… Namibia is probably one of the easiest and safest places ever to self-drive… Hope you make it this way sometime!

      Thanks for the info. I like your bird pictures. The ATI Holidays site is great too. http://www.infotour-africa.com (‘Mericans don’t be shocked by the prices, I think they are Namibia dollars which are about 10 for every 1 USD. You can exchange the price by clicking on it. Very reasonable IMO.)
