Select your very own ‘home in the bush’ from our range of quality 4×4 vehicles and leave the details to us! With us it is all taken care of.
If you like your freedom and look forward exploring the bush on your own then a 4×4 rental is the way forward. You have to be a little advanterous as the road in most Southern African countries can be quite challenging. Specially in the game parks during the dry or wet season. Campsites are alle pretty comfortable wherever you go. Some have swimming pools, eletricity and wifi, some don’t. However, be preparred to change your own flat tire, border crossings can be long and draining and don’t be scared if the animals walk around your tent at night!
