Approximate driving distances and self-drive times for Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Victoria Falls. We add plenty of time to stop for photographs, markets and comfort breaks.

Namibia

Namibia has many attractions spread from north to south and east into the Kalahari and Caprivi Strip. With long drives in between it's best to break up the journeys and explore the lesser known attractions for a richer experience of this ancient land.

Zambia

Zambia is a large, wild country. Great for adventurous road trips though when the rains come, you might prefer to fly as the roads become ravaged with tropical storms and the going is slow and bumpy.

South Africa

South Africa is a country built for self-drive holidays. From Cape Town into the Cape Winelands , the Garden Route is a natural progression that culminates in a malaria-free Garden Route Safari in the Eastern Cape. And of course there's the world-famous Kruger National Park way up north on the Zimbabwe border.
