You will be driving your 4×4 but following a lead vehicle, driven by an expert guide. This will mean you can depart safely from the beaten tracks.
Whilst you lose the freedom of being on a self-drive on your own you probably wouldn’t be self-driving on such itineraries. Those who don’t feel happy about driving on dirt roads or on sandy or rocky tracks, can ride in relative comfort in one of the organization’s vehicles, provided space is available.
A 4×4 escorted self-drive is also a chance to utilize your own 4×4 driving skills and get some new tips to improve on technique.
This option may be the ideal compromise for anyone prepared to sacrifice the ideal of total freedom in exchange for the rewards of reaching places probably otherwise inaccessible. What you may lose in freedom, you will get back in an adventure which may prove to be a once in a lifetime experience.
