Just checking the TA community for the latest information on Self Driving Safaris (4x4) in the national parks of southern, Selous Ruaha Katavi,Tanzania. Please to reply if you have experience in driving, campsites or advice over the last 4 years. We have heard there has been a lot of change for the better with the completion of the Zam-Tam highway (tarmac) tracks4africa better too!
We are also hearing of 4x4 rental companies in the North and DAR renting fully equipped camping 4x4's to travel in the South parks (seems the insurance issue is no longer).
self driving is the only way to see the parks!
if ridding in a boat is swimming, then ridding in a tour bus is traveling, not really for us...
seen more "accidents" with for profit fly by night tour companies then with reasonable, knowledgeable, prepared, people who understand the limitation of their equipment, 4x4 and most importantly themselves!
