Our route this year for ‘Licence to Sell’ set out from the vibrant city of Johannesburg to the provinces of Mpumalanga and Limpopo, where the group piled into three cars to experience three separate adventures. Driving the Panorama Route should be on everyone’s bucket list. Nothing compares to the aptly named God’s Window, the Three Rondavels or Bourke’s Luck Potholes.

 

Mpumalanga and Limpopo are home to the Kruger National Park, but each group went on to safari with lodges based in and around the park, showing an alternative private experience for those seeking the Big Five.

 

At 1.2 million square miles, South Africa is a big country to navigate. Internal flights are numerous and inexpensive, but driving means you can take the day at your own pace, with plenty of time to stop off en route.

 

International car rental companies are at every airport throughout the country and with the current strength of the pound against the rand, the value of renting a car is superb – as is petrol. Driving is on the left, the infrastructure is solid and the roads are well-signed.

 

We hope you enjoy reading about this year’s ‘Licence to Sell’, with tips on pitching a self-drive holiday to visitors to South Africa and we thank you for your ongoing support. To learn more about our country, visit SA Specialist on our website southafrica.net
