The Ultimate Roadtripper

From £1899
Duration 21 - 360 Days
Head overland from Nairobi to Jo'burg, Cairns to Sydney and Los Angeles to New York. We've basically put together all the greatest roadtrips around and stuck them together in this bargain!

First up, fly into Nairobi, then whatever your plans are you have time to make your own way to Jo’burg. Head overland, pick up a tour, bus it yourself or maybe even walk it! We reckon the best way is probably some combination of all of those, but don’t miss out on the Big 5 whatever you do!

From Jo’burg, fly over to Sydney and hop up to Cairns in one swoop. Then make your way down the legendary East Coast of Australia. Again, we can help with how you do it, but you’ve got plenty of options.

While you’re in that neck of the woods, it would almost seem rude not to visit New Zealand and explore there too. Fly into Christchurch, explore the South Island, head north and see what the likes of Auckland, Wellington and the Bay of Islands have to offer, before heading over to Hawaii.

In Hawaii, you can relax and just soak up that famous hospitality and island lifestyle. Surf, sit on a beach, swim, snorkel, scuba dive, whatever it is, you can do it there!

We’ve saved the best for last – the epic, classic road trip that is Route 66. Cruise it in a car or campervan, hop on the Greyhound or pick up a tour that’ll take you through the highlights of the world’s most famous road.

Finally, finish up in New York before heading home. Don’t wait, give our experts a call to get your own roadtrip on the road!
