In many ways self-drive safaris are the ultimate type of safari to explore South Luangwa. Taking a self-drive safari puts you behind the wheel and in charge of your own vehicle, losing the set-timings and thus the crowds to discover this African wilderness for yourself.
However, you might feel you can expand a bit on your animal knowledge. Or you may be unsure on wildlife behaviour; then we highly recommend taking a guided game drive or two during your stay in Luangwa. This will give you a feel for what the animals may do, and build your confidence on what to expect when you are driving yourself around.
Self-drive safaris are easily combined with guided safaris to allow you the best of both worlds and optimal game viewing! For example, you can do a few days of self drive and add a guided drive one evening and another guided safari in the morning…...you have the flexibility as you’re in charge of your itinerary.
Our professional guide will drive your hired vehicle and you keep the vehicle on other times for your self-drive itinerary.
Our flexibility of the mix & match self-drive safaris means you’re free to arrange a combination of the two and really mix up your safari experience.
You have the freedom and flexibility to choose where you go and how to pace your day. And yes, most certainly, your professional guide is there just for you! No others will join, making this the ultimate private safari.
