Self Drives - Zimbabwe

Self drives are an increasingly popular means of travelling around Southern Africa. Many people prefer the self drive option since it allows you more freedom and independence on your travels. Explore the country or countries at hand at your own whim and pace, like a true traveller, behind the wheel of your own or rental vehicle. The self drive touring option is also one of the most cost-effective ways to tour. At Jambo Safari we understand that coach tours work for some people, but that others prefer the freedom to drive themselves and to have a specially tailored tour that fits their requirements.
