Travel tips: How to plan a self-drive road trip around Southern Africa, from Windhoek to Victoria Falls

PLANNING A SELF-DRIVE CAMPING TOUR IN APRIL FROM WINDHOEK TO VIC FALLS TAKING IN ETOSHA, MOREMI, CHOBE AND NXAI PAN. ANY RELIABLE HIRE COMPANIES? K. TAVERNER-SMITH, MT KEIRA

Britz http://www.britz.co.za/ [britz.co.za] is one operator with a range of campervans for hire, including four-wheel drive versions. They also have depots at strategic locations, including Johannesburg, Windhoek, Maun, Livingstone and Victoria Falls. Britz can also assist with route planning, including a customised itinerary to help you make the most of your time in Southern Africa. April is toward the end of the wet season in Botswana and this might not be an ideal time for driving in this region since roads are really bush tracks and they're often inundated in the flat region of the Okavango Delta. Also, game viewing becomes more rewarding during the dry season. It's a sensational area but you need to time it right. Pushing your trip back by a couple of months might be a good idea, but take advice from the experts at Britz.
