Driving in Georgia

When driving through Georgia in a 4×4 car with rooftop tent, it is important to be aware of the local driving conditions. Roads in Georgia can be narrow and winding. Drivers may not always follow traffic laws. It is also common to encounter livestock on the roads. Be ready to slow down or stop to allow them to pass.

When you go into the mountains, it is important to check the weather forecast before setting out. Conditions can change rapidly in the mountains.

Political Situation in Georgia

Since Georgia shares a border with Russia, there are certain border areas that can not be entered. These areas are clearly marked on the maps. We recommend avoiding them in your travel plans. Other than that there are no further travel restrictions in Georgia. 

Besides that, we receive many questions about the current situation in Ukraine and the related security in Georgia. There are no additional safety concerns in Georgia, except that you need to be ‘street smart’ as you should be in any other country where you go on holiday.

Make sure you check for the latest updates from your government.

General Safety Tips for Georgia

When traveling by 4×4 in Georgia, it is important to exercise the same common sense precautions that you would take in any unfamiliar destination. Keep an eye on your belongings at all times and be aware of your surroundings. Avoid walking alone at night, and stick to well-lit, busy areas if you do need to travel after dark.

Georgia is a traditional and conservative country, so it is important to respect local customs and cultural norms. Dress modestly, especially when visiting religious sites. Also be mindful of public displays of affection, which are generally not accepted in Georgian society.
