Guided Self-Drive Safaris

Guided Self-Drive Safaris

Guided self-drive safaris are the latest addition to umkulu adventures. We have added this style of safaris due to the popular demand of our clients and travellers. The guided self-drive safaris are unique in the sense that we have chosen some excellent routes and destinations. We offer you local knowledge and backup.

Our guided self-drive safaris are perfect for the traveller that seeks adventure but lacks awareness and experience of the area. All these safaris have some 4×4 trails and will take us on the road less travelled. Our guided vehicles will communicate and brief you on a daily basis. We offer our bush skills and passion for these remote routes.

Self-drive safaris are best suited for those travellers that want to explore more remote areas of Southern Africa. You have the reassurance of a professional guide along with a backup system in place. We take satellite phones on our guided safaris. Our Tour leaders and guides will have a daily briefing with all our travellers.
