Do you want to discover South Africa by car but not drive yourself? Then you can opt for a car with a private driver / guide who will also explain the sights on the way. No worries about driving on the left or finding the right road, but enjoy the surroundings!

In the Travel packages menu you will find our range of car trips with private driver or choose a trip from our range of “standard” car trips and we calculate the extra costs for a guide / driver for you.
You can also have the journey completely customized based on your own travel wishes. We are happy to make a proposal and price calculation for you.

We have a number of official guides who are also drivers. On this page you will get to know some of them!
