For the adventurous and those comfortable with driving on the left side of the road, self-drive itineraries can be very economical and allow the flexibility to discover many areas you wouldn't see on a scheduled or overland tour.

An overland Safari is led by professional guides as you travel by specially modified four wheel drive safari vehicles. The land safaris travel comfortable distances, allowing ample time to savor the places of interest and photograph the wildlife enroute giving you are more realistic idea of the day to day life of the local people.

Fly-In Safari (Winged Safari)
With flights between camps, these are designed for those who do not have as much time at their disposal. Winged safaris use light aircraft to land you directly on private airstrips where deluxe accommodations await. While it is generally more expensive, it is the most efficient means of transferring you between safari camps easily, with plenty of time to enjoy activities when you get there. Consideration should be made by those who have difficulties with small aircraft and plan their trips accordingly.
