4 Reasons to Rent A 4 x 4 and Explore South Africa
Planning a trip to South Africa? There are different ways to enjoy the country. While some like to stay at boutique hotels, others like to rough it on an African safari or book a fully catered guided tour. At Ivory 4 x 4 Hire, we have first-hand experience exploring the country and the best way to do it is to rent a 4 x 4 and take to the road yourself. Here are a few reasons why you should rent a 4 x 4 and explore South Africa:
- The exchange rates. The buying power foreign travellers have here is one of the most compelling reasons to visit South Africa. With the exchange rate in your favour, you can experience the best that South Africa has to offer without breaking the bank.
- Dramatic natural scenery. Nowhere else in the world will you find a country that has such contrasting scenery, from the Blyde River Canyon and Little Karoo to Table Mountain, the Drakensberg, and the Richtersveld. The country’s forests, coastline, deserts, and mountains are a sight you will not see anywhere else in the world.
- Adventure activities at every turn. Many countries offer outdoor adventures, but South Africa has so many, you will lose count. If you love to get your heart racing, there is a lot to choose from. Outdoor activities include bungee jumping, canopy tours, shark-cage diving, abseiling, rock climbing, hot-air ballooning, and 4 x 4 trails – and we have just the 4 x 4 for you to use for the latter.
- An abundance of safari and game-viewing opportunities. All South African provinces have national parks and reserves where you can drive your hired 4 x 4 around to view the wildlife. Some national parks to consider visiting include the world-famous Kruger National Park (which spans Limpopo and Mpumalanga), Mountain Zebra National Park (Eastern Cape), Karoo National Park (Western Cape), and the Garden Route National Park (which spans the Western and Eastern Cape). Of course, there are many more to choose from and when you rent a 4 x 4 from us for your trip across South Africa, we will gladly provide you with a list of top game-viewing destinations in the country.
