THINGS TO DO ON A SELF DRIVE & FLY DRIVE HOLIDAY…
National Parks hold some incredible driving routes with the likes of Kruger in South Africa, Plitvice in Croatia, and Skaftafell in Iceland all promising to make the journey equally as anticipated as the arrival. Self drive holidays allow travellers to get deeper into the landscapes that exhibit a country at its best, and where roads have been designed with the environment in mind. Speeds may be limited so as to further ensure the safety of wildlife and give drivers a chance to take their foot off the pedal, to get out and explore.
Just because you're driving doesn't mean you can't swap the wheels for a ferry or, better yet, drive onboard and set off again no sooner than the gang plank's down. A fly drive holiday north of Scotland, for instance, takes you off the mainland and onwards to Orkney prior to boarding the overnight ferry to Shetland where you're free to explore with just seals and seabirds for company.
The beauty of an organised fly drive holiday is that you're free to travel under your own steam in some really exciting environments. Getting out of the car to stretch your legs is one thing but hiking the trails in Cuba's Sierra del Rosario Biosphere Reserve, for example, or spending a day fly-fishing in Tasmania's Central Highlands, is quite something else. Horse riding, kayaking, biking or hiking; you name it and you can do it on a self drive holiday.
