A self-drive safari – the most socially distanced leisure activity possible!
As the world slowly begins to open up to travel again here is why a self-drive safari is an ideal choice for a holiday in 2021:
Vehicles are completely sanitised and deep-cleaned after each rental, with a minimum of 72 hours between rentals.
For the most part, you are entirely on your own – a self-drive safari is one of the most socially distanced activities possible!
You are in the open air, in the wilderness enjoying nature – the perfect destress from the chaos of life
Lodges have largely open-air dining, with wide open spaces and comprehensive Covid-19 cleaning protocols enforced by the relevant health authorities
If you are doing a camping based trip, most of the time you will be self-catering alone, and we can even arrange for supplies to be purchased for you at key locations
Last but not least, safari tourism hugely benefits the community and is essential for ongoing conservation of species. The loss of income in 2020 has had a huge impact on the bread line of many families and your presence and confidence in safari travel makes a bigger difference to people’s lives than ever before
