Make the Most of your 4×4 Overland Trip with These Helpful Tips
If there is anything we know a lot about, it is 4×4 adventures. After many years’ operational experience in 4×4 hire and guided tours, we have vast knowledge to share. If you are taking a self-drive tour, then read on for some tips to help you make the most out of your adventure. Travelling overland in Southern Africa is an experience not easily matched by any other. It provides you with an insight into the lives of locals, and also allows you to get up close and personal with Africa, the way it was supposed to be experienced.
Your vehicle choice is one of the biggest factors that impact your enjoyment of the overland trip. Then there is the 4×4 accessories and equipment needed to make your journey safer and easier. If you do not have access to your own vehicle, 4×4 hire is definitely the way to go if you are planning to venture into any of Southern Africa’s more remote regions. Some areas, in fact, are only reachable by 4×4, and these are the most unspoiled areas that you definitely want to explore.
Places like Lower Zambezi, Chobe, Savute, and Moremi all make it onto the must-see list, and for good reason. There are many spots reachable with a normal car, but those “special” spots are the ones only reachable by 4×4. These are only a few of the reasons why 4×4 hire makes great sense if you want to get the most out of your overland safari through Southern Africa.
Route Planning and 4×4 Accessories
As with most things in life, the prepared emerge victorious. There are many different accessories you can rent or buy to take along with you that will make your overland self-drive safari more enjoyable. Why do you need to sacrifice modern comforts and conveniences just to get up close with Africa? Some of the accessories worth considering on your safari include general camping equipment, camp kitchen accessories, vehicle and safari gear, as well as non-standard equipment including a satellite phone and GPS. You do not need to think hard about how these accessories can augment and complement your overland safari.
Partnering with a 4×4 hire company offering route-planning assistance is a great way to eliminate a lot of the stress. You do not need to fret about border crossings, as you know you have all the paperwork needed to clear as fast as possible. You also know where you are going, how long it will take and how to get there. These are only a few of the reasons why prior route planning remains essential.
