Local Self-Drive Holidays

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.

The best self-drive routes to take in South Africa:

The Garden Route – For beach views and forest drives you can’t beat the beautiful Garden Route in the Western Cape. It’s one of South Africa’s most loved routes and for good reason.

The Wild Coast - A 250km stretch of coastline and rugged wilderness the Wild Coast, also known as the Transkei, boasts an incredible setting to drive through and explore. Pristine, unspoiled beaches await you.

Route 62 – From the beauty of green vineyards in the Cape Winelands to the charm of the dusty Karoo, Route 62 will transport you through quirky towns and must see view stops.

The Waterberg Meander – Hidden away in the Limpopo province and known to locals as Africa’s Eden, the Waterberg Meander is a hidden gem as it is not too well known among South African’s.

The Panorama Route – Arguably South Africa’s most scenic self-drive holiday route, the Panorama route takes you through the majestic Mpumalanga highlands.
