Company Profile

At Go Self-Drive Tours we all have one thing in common: the love for new and exciting destinations. Established in 2006, we have ample experience in knowing where new or recurrent travellers to southern Africa want to spend their precious time and understand the importance of making the most of every destination. Southern Africa has so much to offer any kind of traveller –the list of destinations and experiences is truly endless. This is why it is so easy to be passionate about what we offer our clients! Our tour designers have many years of experience personally travelling the country and compiling self-drive itineraries. Our office is based in the scenic town of Knysna in the heart of the Garden Route, South Africa (we love meeting our clients if they are passing). If possible, we usually meet up with our clients in Knysna on their Garden Route self-drive tour, but we are also experts in designing a South African self-drive trip anywhere else in the region.
