Going on any kind of vacation is a great way to relax and unwind, but a recent survey has revealed that 97% of people are happier even when they just have a trip to look forward to in the future. So, just because travel is still restricted across many parts of the world for now, this doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy planning your next big road trip. Organizing the perfect tour takes time, and now you have the opportunity to research a suitable vehicle and prepare a detailed itinerary for your next excursion. Whether you are mapping a route through the countries of Southern Africa or checking out a tour along an iconic American highway, meticulous planning will ensure the trip is safe and comfortable, as well as a thrilling adventure.

Traveling In Comfort On An African Adventure

An increasing number of Kenyans are enjoying road trips, and a popular journey is to take a few weeks to drive from Nairobi to South Africa, passing through several countries on the way. Of course, before embarking on any road trip choosing the right vehicle for your needs is essential, and when traveling long distances like this, comfort is a top priority. For groups of four or more, larger SUVs usually rank well for passenger comfort, with comfortable rear seats, as well as plenty of room for luggage and space to store smaller personal items. Once you have chosen the right vehicle for your journey, you can enjoy driving along the smooth roads of Tanzania, taking in the sights of Lake Malawi, and spotting wildlife on a game drive in Mozambique. Arriving in South Africa opens up many more road trips to explore its diverse natural attractions and vibrant cities.

 Experiencing Variety On A Classic American Route

Last year, more than 700 million trips were taken in the US over the summer, and of these, 97% were journeys by road. Road trips offer greater flexibility than traditional package holidays and allow travellers to customize their journey to suit their personal preferences.  Instead of simply driving a car in order to reach a particular vacation destination, following an iconic American road trip route allows tourists to take in a variety of sights and stop off whenever they want to explore more. Perhaps the most well-known road trip follows the 2,400 miles of Route 66, and crosses eight states as it passes from Chicago to California. It offers a great way to experience so many different aspects of American culture, from quirky roadside diners in Missouri to sprawling cattle ranches in Arizona. For a more exhilarating ride along dramatic coastal cliffs, you can take the Pacific Coast Highway from San Francisco to Los Angeles and enjoy breath-taking views of the sea.

While global travel restrictions remain in place, you can still enjoy the thrill of planning your next road trip adventure, no matter what continent it’s on. At the same time, within individual countries, travelling by car is still one of the most flexible ways to explore more of your local area.
