Self-Drive 4 x 4 Adventures in the African Bushveld
If you want to enjoy the wonders of the southern African Bushveld, our rental packages are perfect for both locals and tourists. Safaris are very popular in the continent’s national parks and nature reserves; however, you don’t have any control over where the safari will take you. Self-drive adventures, on the other hand, put you behind the wheel. 4×4 double-cab bakkies are ideal for the wilderness, as they can deal with rough terrain to get where you need to be. Therefore, when you want to explore, they come highly recommended.
Our rental packages are tailored to suit your itinerary. As a result, we offer them at fair and competitive prices. These packages include the 4×4 vehicle and the outdoor gear and equipment to accompany you on your adventures. However, the vehicle requires a skilled driver to deal with the various challenges on the road ahead. Most locals are comfortable driving these vehicles on off-road terrain. If you are up for the challenge of getting behind the wheel for one of these self-drive adventures, here are some things to consider when heading into the bush.
What to Expect When Exploring the Bushveld
Outdoor adventures all have their own challenges. Apart from the free-roaming wildlife that you will encounter when exploring a national park, you will also face the harsh and unforgiving African climate. The winter months are, therefore, the most suitable to explore the Bushveld, as the temperate climate is comfortable for most. When tackling the rough terrain, a 4×4 bakkie is just right but when you opt for a self-drive safari, you must be a competent and observant off-roader.
Tourists from abroad may not know how wild African animals will react to their presence and a situation can become dangerous if not handled correctly. Elephants, rhinos, and hippos may storm a vehicle if they feel threatened by it. If you are experienced, you will know how to avoid such situations. So, while we can provide the 4×4 vehicle to handle the Bushveld, you are tasked with handling such driving situations. However, if you prefer a professional behind the wheel instead of a self-drive adventure, you can hire one of our experts to take over all the driving duties.
