Self-Drive Holidays South Africa

cape town


Our revolutionary new concept on self-drive holidays in South Africa will make life so much easier when you plan your next self-drive holidays. For a small fee to cover our expert knowledge and many hours compiling the information, you get a comprehensive daily itinerary – complete with suggested deviations, highlights along the way, accommodation suggestions,  road and weather conditions, safety, cultural tips and much more! It could take you days or even weeks to gather this type of info online to build a logistically correct itinerary. And then it may not all be correct and updated… With our many years’ experience, we also offer trustworthy and important localised tips which you may not find on the Internet!

The Cost

Buy your self-drive package online hereunder with the information needed to tweak the itinerary in your own time. For a small extra fee, you could have unlimited assistance from us for any additional info you may need. Lastly, if you book your self-drive holiday through us, the initial amount you paid for the package goes towards the total of the price of your tour, so in the end, you do not even pay for all this info! Scroll down to see the geographical options.

Why Self-drive?

Self-drive is cheaper, however, some costs initially not catered for, may appear during the trip. You travel at your own pace with the flexibility to customise and change your itinerary – even while en-route.  And with our new concept, we supply handy packaged data so you can build your holiday with confidence.  We offer essential information, helpful tips, and provide services in a range of suggested popular modules to suit your requirements.  You also decide how much you want us to be involved in the planning and execution of your adventure. You can achieve by choosing one of our options hereunder.

How do I Proceed

To start with your self-drive holidays South Africa, we offer three choices:

Starter Pack 

With this option, we supply comprehensive facts on the route you choose. This includes an itinerary on each area specifically designed for self-drive with suggested deviations,  trip durations, daily highlights, accommodation options, daily distances, creative tips along your way, updated road conditions with distances, the recommended type of vehicle for the area, and some cultural advice along the way. You pay us a small amount for our time and knowledge, and you are ready to build and shape your dream holiday. In turn, we promise the data is accurate to the best of our ability and kept up to date.

Intermediate Bundle

Choosing this bundle you pay a little more which includes all the above, and a few hours of assistance via e-mail to help you shape your itinerary to your requirements, but still perfectly enjoyable logistically. We’ll always be available for any additional questions you may have on your trip!

Full Deal

The full deal is for those who want unlimited assistance from us, even while on holiday with us in South Africa. The initial cost is higher than the previous two, but if you book your entire trip through us, this amount will form part of the final payment. It means all the info needed to secure your holiday is entirely free! Contact us if you have any questions on the self-drive packages hereunder: info@southerncircle.com

Guided Tours and Services

Alternatively, you may instead want to opt for a sit-back-and-relax holiday using our fully guided tours!
