A 'self-drive' holiday is suggested for the more adventurous traveller. It is a cost effective way to see a country provided a certain amount of 'homework' is done prior to travel, unlike a guided tour where one has constant access to the guide's knowledge. We recommend that you obtain basic information on the local culture, customs, safety as well as a knowledge of the local currency, electricity, access to banking facilities, shopping hours, using the roads, etc before visiting such country or area.
Obtain an itinerary of a guided tour through the area you are planning to visit. See our pages describing the Full Itineraries of our tours. It is highly recommended to observe the general rule of thumb mentioned earlier when using a scheduled tour itinerary to design your self-drive package. The distance traveled is extremely important. If you are trying to travel too far per day your holiday can turn into a miserable experience. South Africa covers over an area of around 2,2 million square kilometres and distances on maps are easily misread when planning routes between stops.
Firstly, you should decide whether this is the option for you.
Secondly, familiarise yourself with the country and identify areas/places you want to visit. Acquire literature on the area.
Consider the time available for your holiday and your budget. At this point it may be advisable to make contact with a reputable operator either directly or through your local agency. Look at what they offer, peruse the itineraries of their scheduled tours.
The self-drive concept has been in practice in Europe and USA for some time now. In South Africa it has also taken on momentum and its popularity is increasing. It is generally the concept of driving yourself in a hired vehicle along a suggested itinerary and pre-booked accommodation. This option is generally taken where budget is a consideration and/or where the tourists want the freedom of deciding for themselves on time spent at different areas and privacy when touring.
South Africa is blessed with the most amazing coastline of around 3000 kilometres. From the West Coast with its brilliant white beaches, dunes and blue seas, albeit a little cold at around 12 degrees Centigrade, to the East Coast beaches, many of them with Blue Flag status, where holiday makers play virtually all year round on endless golden beaches with the luke warm (21 - 26 degrees Centigrade) Indian Ocean invitingly rolling onto the sand.
A democratic society is basically one where every citizen has the right to vote in a secret ballot for the people who would govern the country. Once a democratic government has been elected, it also becomes the legislative authority of the country. Citizenship then implies a duty to uphold the law.
In South Africa the Constitution is the highest law of the land, and no law or government decree may supersede it. It is implemented by an independent, 11 member Constitutional Court.
