Self-drive holidays offer the ultimate flexibility: you pick your pace, and we’ll craft the perfect tailor-made route to include unique road trip ideas, boutique hotels and hand-picked experiences to suit you. When it comes to luxury driving holidays, the USA is the undisputed home of the road trip, and even though you’re probably already conjuring up misty-eyed visions of legendary Route 66 self-drive holidays, there are plenty of other bucket-list road trips from California’s Pacific Coast to the rust-red vistas of America’s South-west.
We’re full of other road trip bucket-list ideas, from motoring along the Garden Route in South Africa to Australia’s Great Ocean Road. But the route on your road trip holiday is up to you. It’s time to get your motor runnin’ and hit the open road.PLAN MY ROAD TRIP

There are few things more liberating than turning the ignition and hitting the open road. The American Southwest is the spiritual home of the road trip and this 12-day adventure leaves none of its rust-red landscapes undiscovered as you pay the ultimate homage to freedom on four wheels.VIEW EXPERIENCE
California’s Pacific Coast Highway is the ultimate US family road trip, serving up sun-soaked adventure, wildlife encounters and opportunities to let your hair down every inch of the way. Instead of cries of “Are we there yet?”, your kids will be saying: “Do we have to leave?”VIEW EXPERIENCE

A sleek sanctuary is the last thing you’d expect to find in Utah’s pristine red-rock country but you’ll be awfully glad it’s here. Amangiri is a relaxing oasis in the heat of the desert and its sand-hued canvas-topped pavilions and Navajo-influenced spa treatments take inspiration from their surrounds to deliver unparalleled comfort. Even the swimming pool looks like it’s being fed by the cliff face it’s built into. Perhaps it’s apt Amangiri is in the eye of a Martian landscape, because it feels out of this world.
Close to Hermanus and on its own five-thousand-hectare private reserve, Grootbos Private Reserve’s Forest Lodge is not your average rural stay. Grootbos is one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots, a place of superlatives with over 868 plant species (seven of which were first discovered in the reserve), one hundred endangered plant species and three milkwood forests over one thousand years old. The exposed Dutch brick and floor-to-ceiling windows make Forest Lodge ideal for exploring this wilderness from.
Sitting plumb in arguably the most astounding of Sedona’s terracotta canyons, Enchantment Resort’s sensitive design melds flawlessly with its rocky surrounds. Its location was once a sacred place of restoration for ancient tribes and the resort’s tipis, Native American patterns and traditional restorative techniques in its spa are an ode to the land’s ancestors. There’s nothing the staff here don’t know about the surrounding seventy acres of wilderness, leaving you with the feeling this patch of Sedona really does possess a kind of magic.
Pitched close to the northern rim of the Grand Canyon, this glampsite puts you in a prime spot to enjoy the natural splendour with few others around. Your tent is simple but comfortable, yet your wild setting is so good you won’t miss the luxuries. This is peak Americana: roasting s’mores over a campfire, hiking trails peeling off in every direction, world-class stargazing and dining al fresco right on the canyon’s edge for an immense rugged vista. Here, that’s all the five-star luxury you’ll ever need.
Just a few dusty boot imprints away from the entrance to Zion National Park, Cliffrose Lodge is ominously overlooked by one of the park’s trademark towering outcrops. Sitting beside the Virgin River, the rooms, suites and villas speckled throughout the lodge’s lush gardens make it feel like a boutique resort and mini oasis rolled into one. You will quickly cherish the peaceful ambience the lodge emits, especially if you have weary legs following a busy day traversing Zion’s rust-coloured landscapes.
Encased by indigenous forests, mountains, lakes and untrodden beaches, Pezula Resort & Spa quite possibly has the best seat in the house on South Africa’s famed Garden Route. The tasty fresh produce on offer at Zachary’s Grill Room, soothing wellness quarter and world-class golf course are all excellent feathers in Pezula’s cap but there’s no escaping it: you’re here for the mindblowing scenery.
