Wanted a quality, romantic New Years break. That is exactly what Go Self-Drive tours did for us.

All well organised, Onguma the Fort was fantastic !

Great self driving trip, with a wonderful itinerary

Michelle from GoSelf Drive put our idea into reality and arranged an amazing 10 day itinerary for us.
She suggested our route, booked hotels and car rental, and provided lists of things to see and do at each stop. Very helpful in answering all questions and obliging to changes we requested.
A really enjoyable holiday where we saw so many amazing things.
All in all an excellent experience and highly recommend Go-Self Drive Tours.

Good, prompt, and responsive during bid and during our travel.

Recently, my wife and I traveled to South Africa from October 24 to December 12, 2019; and itinerary was primarily decided by us. We solicited bids from number of local travel agencies to book 3-4 star accommodations, purchase SanPark Wild Card, book premier classe train tickets from Cape Town to Jo’Berg and provide a 4x4 SUV to be able to drive on paved & unpaved roads in SA and Swaziland’s National Parks and country side. We selected Go Self-Drive Tours (Fleet Foot Safaries) primarily because of Hennie Beker’s promptness to our requests and willingness to communicate on WhatsApp to finalize our plan on a short notice. Hennie was very positive and responsive to our recommended changes, provide his company’s Toyota Prado (insurance included) for 46-days self-drive tour; and put together a well-organized travel binder and a folder with road maps and site visit brochures. Our interaction with him and his staff (including Elmor Beker and Sadi Schelan) during our travel in South Africa has been pleasant & prompt. One exception was the vehicle given to us has had problems the day after we took possession in Jo’Burg with its air-conditioning and couple of days later with starting. The A/C was promptly fixed outside of Kruger NP at a Toyota dealer. The high-mileage 2014 Toyota Prado SUV failed to start and we had to jump at least five to six times in first 11 days. One time while watching wild dogs at a water hole in Kruger at high noon and second time on a bridge (to Mpila Camp site, iMfolozi NP) stopped to observe two adult elephants ‘fighting or playing rough’ and one of them aggressively advanced towards our stalled vehicle. After repeated requests, the company-owned Prado was replaced with a rental SUV in Hluhluwe-iMfolozi’s Hilltop Lodge. During our 46-days of 4,000 mile-drive from Johannesburg to Cape Town, I had to use four different rental vehicles instead of one! I would have given a five-star rating if we have had no problems with Toyota Prado stalling and its air conditioning. It took them eleven days to replace a poorly maintained vehicle. Regrettably, I have to give a four-star rating to Go Self-Drive Tours & Fleet Foot Safaries and advise them a ‘customer Safety First’ approach in their future travel business.

Great Trip. Great Experience. Great Team!

Go Self-Drive organized our 13-day trip to Mozambique and South Africa - Kruger Park in December 2019. We are a family of 5 from Portugal, and I just want to say this: GREAT EXPERIENCE! Everyone at Go Self-Drive has been amazing and offered great service, friendliness and availability. 5 stars! Special thanks to Elaine, with whom we have always had excellent communication and flexibility, and to Hennie, who kindly welcomed us upon arrival and gave us all the precious directions we followed on our trip.
We strongly recommend Go Self-Drive to all who, like us, want to have a great experience in these magnificent locations.

They were very responsive to our requests and needs for our African adventure

I was well pleased with the communication and they provided exceptional service. We flew to South Africa on our frequent flyer points so they had to be responsive to our transportation choices. They did an excellent job of meeting those needs. In addition, after we returned stateside, I received a billing on my credit card for rental car charges that had already been paid for in the booking with Go Self-Drive. When I alerted them and asked for help, they had my charges reversed within 2 days. Thanks to all at Go Self-Drive.

It was a great self driving trip, with a wonderful itinerary, and easy to follow instructions!

This was our second time to use Go Self-Drive Tours in South Africa and both driving trips have been exceptional. Not knowing much about South Africa, we were pleasantly surprised at the local knowledge that was provided. All the instructions were easy to follow and the various local recommendations were excellent. In the rare event that we had a question during the trip, the company quickly responded and the issue was immediately resolved. Go Self-Drive Tours definitely exceeded our expectations and we look forward to using them again for another South African adventure.

Once in a lifetime holiday

We had an amazing first trip to Africa when we went to Cape Town, the Garden Route and the wine country in July 2019.

We asked Go Self-Drive to plan a 3-week itinerary and they suggested our route, booked hotels and car rental, and provided lists of things to see and do at each stop. Our dealings with Elmor and Sadi were friendly, prompt and professional at all times.

The trip exceeded our expectations. The route was exactly what we were looking for, and the hotels were perfectly located and excellent value for money. We are already planning our next trip to Africa and we will definitely be back in touch with the Go Self-Drive team. Highly recommended.

Very helpful in working with us to give us the experience we wanted.

Really enjoyed working with this team. They were always there to answer any questions we had. Also very eager to learn about what was good and not so good about our experience. We were traveling for five weeks. This was a long trip to plan and it is hard to get everything perfect. That being said, GOSELFDRIVE came very close and to their credit, always helped resolve whatever issue it was. We also had the pleasure of meeting with one of the owners - all in all an excellent experience.

We thank them for helping make our journey one to remember.

Road trip of a lifetime!

We just returned from our 22-day family road trip to The Kalahari, Richtersveld and West Coast in South Africa.
We contacted Chinky at Go Self Drive with our idea and she put our idea into reality and drafted an amazing itinerary for us.
She liaised closely with us during the booking process and kept us updated on all the accommodation booked.
Prior to our trip she delivered our comprehensive travel package, which contained directions, information on where we were staying and what to do as well as a road atlas.
Our family had such a wonderful time and would book our next road trip with Go Self Drive in a heartbeat.
Thank you and keep up the great work!

The best support we have never had

We contacted the agency to create a very personalised tour. They really understood our necessities and they were able to suggest always different solutions. We created a fantastic tour and we visited all the things we were interested to. Before departure they gave us a very complete report so we didn’t have any problem during our self drive tour.
