The road less travelled will often lead to gorgeous safari lodges and private reserves that are indeed the gems of our country, and we highly recommend that you take the opportunity to travel that particular road. Here are some of the best self-drive 4×4 safari destinations and routes in South Africa:
- Kruger National Park – the Kruger National Park needs no real introduction to the off-road community. Actually, it’s a popular destination for all types of travellers and is extremely easy to access when compared to other reserves and parks in the country and surrounding countries. This park delivers some of the finest game viewing opportunities in the country. The Kruger National Park is huge. In fact, many describe it as being as big as a country itself. You will find no end to self-drive and guided safari opportunities here.
- Panorama Route – this route lies just west of the Kruger National Park and is a popular choice for many off-road enthusiasts, as all along the way, you can enjoy the discovery of quirky towns and gorgeous dramatic landscapes that are quite a sight to behold. This particular route is truly for the off-road enthusiast that loves the outdoors and appreciates nature’s beauty. Enjoy the rugged rock formations at Bourke’s Luck Potholes in the Blyde River Canyon and prepare to be awed by God’s Window and The Pinnacle – both spectacular view points. There are both road and off-road tracks that you can use while travelling between the various towns along the way, which are well worth your time and investigation. What towns can you expect to see? Hazyview, White River, Malelane, Dullstroom and Pilgrim’s Rest.
- Route 62 on the Garden Route – this route is a gem well worth discovering and those who have travelled it often, return for a second helping. It’s the perfect introduction to the Little Karoo and while it hugs the N2 coastal route via Mossel Bay and Port Elizabeth, it also offers some of the most breathtaking and remote mountain passes in the country.
