The Enquiry & Booking Process

At African Arid Experiences we try our best to keep the enquiry & booking process as simple and painless as possible, whilst still ensuring you peace-of-mind and assurance that your money is going to afford you the best possible experience. 

We offer 3 ways for you to explore and enjoy our destinations.

4x4 Camper or other Vehicle Hire


Nothing complicated to do here.

•  All our bookings are ex Cape Town
•  Select the kind of vehicle you require
•  The usage you intended it for
•  The period you would like it for
•  Are you using it in conjunction with
    one of our self-drive tours?



2.  Self-Drive Tours


The most difficult thing here is making the choice of which self-drive tour to do.

•  Choose a tour from our selection of self-drive tours

•  Decide on the one that interests you 

•  Click the booking button form,
    fill it in and send it to us.


The rest of the process is detail on the right
under The Booking Process heading.


3.  Guided Tours

The booking process for Guided Tours is a  teeny bit more complicated as we need more details so that we can make your holiday extra special.

•  Most of our most popular guided tours are set for specific dates.
•  We can also adapt our Self-Drive Tours to guided tours.

•  Choose a tour from our selection of guided or self-drive tours
