Built for Africa, in Africa
The Ford Ranger has a long and proud history as a popular pick-up truck. In South Africa, locals refer to a pick-up truck by its Afrikaans name of “bakkie”. These vehicles are extremely popular in South Africa, especially the lifestyle-orientated double-cab luxury variants, which are often used as daily drivers. They serve a dual purpose and the 4×4 models can go off-road as well. If you want to rent a 4×4 that can handle the harsh and challenging African wilderness, this type of vehicle is the answer to your needs.
We offer 4×4 rental options that include an all-encompassing list of camping gear and outdoor equipment to take on the wilderness on your own terms. Although the prospect of heading into the wild can be daunting without the right set of wheels, the Ford Ranger delivers a package that laughs in the face of tricky terrain and adverse weather. This bakkie is available with a 4×4 system and low-range transmission to conquer any type of terrain. Therefore, it is a vehicle that is perfectly suited to the African bush.
When it comes to exploring and taking on the wilderness, you will need more than just a regular 4×2 bakkie. The locally manufactured Ford Ranger 2.2 XL Double Cab is an ideal candidate for this. Featuring a 2,2-ℓ turbo-diesel engine, along with the aforementioned 4×4 low-range gearbox and even a differential lock, it has plentiful low-rev torque and terrain-conquering traction to give you the ultimate control off the beaten track. When tackling challenging off-road trails, you need something capable with good grip and ground clearance. This 4×4 is made to take rough terrain in its stride, making it an extremely good rental choice.
Air-conditioning is a necessity when exploring the African wilderness. Even in the winter months, the Bushveld can turn up the heat, so it is critical to stay cool and hydrated. When you rent a 4×4 and camping gear from us, we ensure that you have all the necessary gear to make the most of your trip. This Ford Ranger model not only features air-conditioning but also power steering, airbags, and ABS brakes to keep you comfortable and safe far from home.
Ivory 4×4 hire is your first choice when you want to enjoy Africa up close and personal. The Ford Ranger is one of the toughest bakkies and is equipped for the African environment – and you can rent one from us.
