Whether your bush break is going to be roaming the mountains or racing across dunes, few vehicles will give you better comfort and performance than a Toyota Hilux 4×4. Consistently top of its class for all the reasons that count, 4×4 adventures in South Africa often start with just this vehicle. ABS braking is where the safety begins, and the Toyota Hilux 4×4 is also equipped with airbags and assorted driver monitoring and other features, making it a reliable and safe vehicle.
As for comfort and enjoyment, the power steering and aircon make the drive nothing but a pleasure. This car is, by many official and unofficial reckonings, probably the best version of luxury-sedan-become-rugged-off-roader around.
South Africa might always have been a bit Toyota mad; but, make no mistake, Toyota’s 4×4 bakkie can justify its adoring fans. A very capable 2.5 litre turbo diesel engine makes short work of the rough stuff, but it also has the right low-range attitude for persistently working through bush trails and off-road terrain for hours on end.
Best of all, you can hire a Toyota Hilux 4×4 over the holiday season.
Make Sure You Get What You Need Out of a Toyota Hilux 4 x 4 Hire
The spirit of abandonment can take over in December, but smart travellers will remember a few key points about off-road 4×4 jaunts. Plan ahead and know where you’re going to be stopping, refuelling, and what kind of terrain you’ll encounter at your destination.
Bundu-bashing is never more fun than when you have sorted the admin and logistics first. If there’s more than one vehicle, remember to stage crossing new terrain as you encounter it – both of you racing through the swamp only to both get stuck isn’t great!
While you still have open communication between drivers, plan how you’ll toggle who goes first, so that ideally one vehicle is always on solid ground and can tow a little if needed.
