The Importance of Proper Camping Gear
Africa is a beautiful continent and ideal for an adventurous camping trip in the wilderness. Far away from civilisation, you can experience the African bush like never before but to do so, you need quality equipment and a vehicle that can handle rough off-roading. Ivory 4×4 Hire offers custom 4×4 and camping-gear hire solutions. Whether you are a local who want to try out a new, remote campsite or a foreigner who is excited about your first African safari, we can provide the necessary gear and the vehicle to make it possible.
Our hire rates are dependent on every unique request. Based on the season, destination, hire duration, and the details of your planned trip, we calculate the quote accordingly. With our extensive knowledge of travelling Southern Africa with a 4×4 and a rooftop tent, we know that your trip will be dependent on the right gear and, therefore, our rentals include a wide array of equipment to ensure that you can make the most of your trip in Africa. Let us delve into some detail surrounding our 4×4 vehicles and the outdoor equipment that we have for hire.
A Quick Run-Down of Some of the Gear
The first thing that you will need to take on an African safari is a 4×4 vehicle that can handle challenging off-road terrain. We offer two double-cab choices; both are proudly manufactured in South Africa and all our vehicles are model-year 2015 or newer. The Toyota Hilux is a very popular choice, thanks to its reputation of durability and reliability and it is ideal for tackling the wilderness of Africa. We offer the 2,5 diesel SRX double-cab version.
Your other 4×4 double-cab option is the Ford Ranger, regularly vying for the top bakkie sales spot with the Hilux. As such, it offers a very similar package and, once again, we offer a mid-range diesel model, the 2,2 XL double-cab. With the wheels sorted, the focus turns to the camping gear that you will need on your trip. When sleeping in the bush, you will need all the basic equipment to get through a day in the wild. And, when taking on Africa, you need a little more than just a sleeping bag and a flint.
Our extensive list of camping gear takes care of all the things you are likely to need on your trip – with a lot of optional extras available upon request. Standard camping equipment includes a rooftop tent for sleeping and a GPS for navigation. We also throw in a water container and a diesel container (both taking 25 ℓ) to ensure that nothing and nobody runs out of juice. Camp-kitchen equipment and vehicle and safari gear are also included. Optional extras include, amongst many others, a second rooftop tent, ground tents, and a satellite phone.
