There is something so nostalgic about packing up the car for a big family road-trip to your holiday destination. Piling the kids, suitcases, and sarmies in for a self-drive to a local holiday is something most South Africans have experienced in their childhoods. Take advantage of our public holidays or school holidays and take a self-drive local holiday across South Africa. It really is one of the best ways to really experience the beauty of our country.
With routes like the Garden Route, the Midlands Meander in KZN, the Wild Coast in the Eastern Cape, the Waterberg Meander in Limpopo and the famous Route 62 in the Western Cape you’ll be spoiled for choice when deciding where to holiday. Explore at your leisure and enjoy the flexibility of planning out the day you want as you have no set itinerary with a self-drive holiday. There’s also the added bonus that self-drive is a more affordable way of travelling.
Browse our range of local holiday packages with the self-drive option and start planning your local getaway. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
