This Is Our Story

Self Drive Adventures - Wedding

In 2009 Mike and Linda decided to elope and get married in Swakopmund, Namibia.   Originally from Africa, Mike wanted to share it with his new wife.  The next nine months were spent researching and planning a route around some of the most remote and sparsely populated parts of Southern Africa. 

Some friends and family were invited along for the “honeymoon”.  It was the adventure of a lifetime and Mike returned home determined to share what the group had experienced with others. 

​Self Drive Adventures was born. 

The first guests loved the African adventures and asked, “Where are you taking us next?” In 2015 we started expanding our destinations across the globe.

We are still a family owned and operated travel agency based in Australia.  We have firsthand experience of all the destinations we offer and we use the services of handpicked experienced tour operators around the globe who take care of the bookings and logistics.
