Welcome to the Resource for Driving Safaris

1992 Baines Baobabs

Having pioneered the self-drive safari concept in 1992 Meregan and Charles Norwood have more than 25 years of experience creating driving holidays that changed the way people experience Africa. Nowadays its a recognised sector of the safari industry and one that is more rewarding than most passive traditional safaris.

Advice, Inspiration, Planning and Safety

We are a free resource that aims to help with planning advice, information and preparation for anyone planning to drive themselves on safari or overland through Africa. We aim to encourage, inform and help prepare everyone planning to independently drive themselves and have a rewarding safe journey. Ultimately we want to pass on the collective knowledge that we have learned to have safe enjoyable experiences in Africa.

Where to find the bookings

We can also advise you on where to find discounted Safari lodges and camps in Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Malawi, South Africa and East Africa and National Park campsite reservations, as well as how to make National Park reservations and how to find the best flight options at discounted rates to airports in Nambia, Botswana, Zambia, Malawi, South Africa and East Africa.

Staying safe on your journey

We also advise on Travel Rescue and the essential Flying Doctor insurance that is difficult for individuals to obtain and which no independent traveller should be without.
