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

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.)
We are doing our second self drive safari in early 2015 and love it! Good post!
Wow, to put it mildly. I found your post about your first trip: http://cindyknoke.com/2012/12/01/kruger-national-park-photos-travel-tips-for-the-first-time-visitor/ . I think photographers, animal conservationists, and plain ol’ flora and fauna lovers should check out your website. (I see quite a few already have.) The photos are superb and the text is informative and educational. What a novel idea.
