The best way to see South Africa is by means of a self-drive experience. Nothing beats being able to turn off the main route and explore the wilder side of the country at places such as Riemvasmaak with it glorious rock formations, or driving through one of our many game parks at leisure speed. There are also places along the West Coast where no tour bus can take you, but that are so breathtakingly beautiful that it would be a shame to travel through South Africa without seeing those natural gems.
But you don’t want to go out and buy an off-road vehicle just for one road trip, which is why it is certainly recommended that you rent a 4×4 in South Africa for the ultimate holiday experience. Fortunately, you can rent a 4×4 from us at an affordable price, making it possible to explore the country at your own pace and to experience why South Africans love taking off-road trips.
Now that you know where you can rent a 4×4 in South Africa, let’s look at the checklist for the three essentials to pack for any trip.
It is essential in South Africa as the sun can be quite unforgiving. Even though you are in a luxury 4×4 with tinted windows, you can still burn when you get out of the vehicle at the various lookout points.
Never leave home without a bottle of water and this is especially true when you go on an off-road trip. Dehydration is always a risk and can lead to drowsiness.
Yes, a GPS is great for on-road travelling, but when you rent a 4×4 to travel along the dirt roads of South Africa, you may very well find that some of the roads never feature on the GPS maps. This is especially true with smartphone navigation relying on cellphone towers for signal. Buy a road map as your backup.
