Some feedback from our lovely clients…
Thank you so much for putting together such a great trip for us. We had an amazing 12 days in Botswana and have come away with so many unforgettable experiences. The animals were amazing, the people a delight to travel amongst, and the self drive aspect was a lot of fun.

“When we told our friends we were going to do a self drive tour in Botswana, they were surprised and in some cases alarmed. We would never have contemplated such an adventure had we not heard Gillian talking on Radio New Zealand. We were so pleased we did and had a wonderful 12 days.
We have driven in many countries and found driving in Botswana quite manageable. They drive on the same side of the road as we do in New Zealand and the roads are generally good and quite empty, other than the main highway. But just like New Zealand, you need to keep your wits about you. We downloaded the relevant maps from Google Maps and used them offline. They were excellent. The people are very welcoming, so we always felt safe.
Since it was our first time in Africa, we chose to drive from south to north. The south provided a gentle introduction with smaller numbers of animals, but these increased as we moved north to the magnificent Chobe National Park which alone has 50,000 elephants.
Whatever your wishes are, Gillian and her colleagues can tailor a trip for you. They know great places to stay and book all your game drives etc. We thoroughly recommend Self Drive Tours Botswana.”
