Great Drives

Free spirited travellers wanting to reclaim a sense of spontaneity on their travels should look no further than a self-drive holiday with Steppes. Designed to give you the freedom to dictate your own pace, these holidays combine classic self-drive destinations such as South Africa, Namibia and Australia with countries like Morocco, Malaysia and Argentina, where self-drive may not be the first option that springs to mind.

What these holidays share is a philosophy that puts the traveller firmly in control and encourages a sense of adventure and self-exploration. On some of the more adventurous itineraries, such as the Yunnan province of China or the foothills of the Indian Himalayas, we’ve factored in a guide vehicle to help overcome the challenges of driving in these areas.

If you share the view that travel is as much about the journey itself as it is arriving then these holidays are for you. Put yourself back in the driving seat and take the road less travelled on a Steppes self-drive holiday.

South Atlantic Coast and Cederberg Mountains

Hit the road and head to the Cederberg mountains where the San Bushmen, Africa's most genetically diverse people, have painted saffron elephants on the rock faces. Watch glimmering flamingoes retract and stand on one leg in philosophical meditation or visit the infamous Robben Island.
