Self-drive holidays to South Africa

Self-drive itineraries are a flexible and cost-effective way to discover South Africa at your own pace. One popular itinerary starts in Cape Town and travels along the Garden Route to Port Elizabeth. Alternatively, the garden province of KwaZulu-Natal lends itself to circular routes, starting and finishing in Durban.

Whatever appeals to you, our team of specialists will plan your holiday so that you can see the highlights of this remarkable country without spending too much time in the car.

Cox & Kings can arrange for you to collect your car from the airport upon arrival or have it delivered to your hotel. It is also easy for us to arrange one-way car hire within South Africa.

To ensure that you benefit from the highest standards of reliability, service and support, we work with Europcar in South Africa, which offers a 24-hour helpline, SOS emergency service and medical / legal assistance. All Cox & Kings self-drive holidays include Classic Plus car hire insurance and a local mobile phone with reliable coverage.

On arrival in South Africa, you are met by a guide and given a comprehensive self-drive pack. With a wealth of expert local knowledge, the guide can offer advice on any aspect of the itinerary. South Africans drive on the left side of the road and conditions are generally good.
