Self-Drive Tours


For the explorers, those who “go with the flow” and travel at their own pace, DesignAfrique offers a selection of travel packages consisting of pre-booked accommodation, paired with the free movement, that only an individual rental car can offer!

We offer self-drive tours in South Africa, Mozambique and Botswana. Whilst self-driving in South Africa and Mozambique is an excellent way to experience the vast and varied landscapes of Africa, we do not recommend self-drive tours in the Botswana region for travellers who do not have very extensive 4x4 driving experience and/or have taken official classes on advanced 4x4 driving. 

Botswana’s Safari Destinations have absolutely no infrastructure in the form of roads, emergency hospitals or cell phone signal - this region is nothing but true wilderness, with tricky terrain and barely any civilization. If you get stuck in the mud/sand, run out of spare tyres, or require emergency medical assistance, this is an unforgiving region to find yourself in, and Botswana is therefore not suitable for non-experienced mobile camping travellers.

Whether you are a first-time visitor to Southern Africa, or a seasoned enthusiast, who has visited our lovely continent many times before - we can offer you an itinerary tailored to your needs and wishes! Let us know what you wish to see and we will advise you on the ideal routing, provide you with hotel options and give you ideas on possible activities along the way!

Without the restrictions of pre-booked dates/times of activities, you will enjoy nothing but opportunity and choice - The World is Your Oyster!



Southern Africa truly has it all: Authentic Big 5 Wildlife-Safaris, White Sandy Beaches, Bustling Metropolitan Cities, Dramatic Mountain Ranges with Canyons, Desert Regions and even the famous Victoria Falls - one of the official Natural World Wonders.

This is a destination, it has something for everyone.
