Rent a 4×4 for a Self-Drive Tour of South Africa
Self-drive tours of South Africa have become popular over the years, mainly due to the freedom they offer travellers and also because they can work out more cost-effectively than a scheduled tour. When you opt to rent a 4×4 for your South African holiday, you can do more and see more, that is an undisputed fact. There is no schedule to follow, other tourists to consider, and you can enjoy the sunrise or sunset with your own elected travel party, and not a crowd.
The roads in South Africa are fairly good in most areas, although, if you do not rent a 4×4, some roads could spell danger for the tyres and suspension of normal cars. For instance, in Limpopo, where some of the country’s most exhilarating 4×4 trails can be found, some of the roads simply cannot be traversed without a 4×4. That aside, most main routes are well-maintained and safe. If you have not travelled to South Africa before, it is best to consult with a trip planner, so that you can get the most out of your drive. At Ivory 4×4 Hire, we offer trip-planning services to all our clients visiting South Africa. We have a great love for off-road adventures, so you can expect to end up with a vacation that will not be easily forgotten once you have left.
When you rent a 4×4 from us, our service offering is comprehensive. Our 4x4s are all serviced and well-maintained, but that is not all that we can guarantee. In addition to hiring a quality vehicle, when you rent a 4×4 from us, it is fully equipped with all off-road equipment, camping gear, and safety equipment. This means that all you need to do is plan your route, pack your clothes and food, and come pick up the vehicle. If you are arriving at an airport, we can arrange an airport transfer for you.
While our service is meticulous and thorough, we keep our rates affordable. Long- and short-distance drives can be better enjoyed in a 4×4. You can drive inland, along coastal routes, or from town to town between some of the country’s most famous nature reserves and national parks. Regardless of what route you choose, you will discover that South Africa has beauty to find in every nook and cranny. The people are friendly and the diverse cultures will truly captivate you.
At Ivory 4×4 Hire, we hire out 4×4 vehicles in South Africa that can be taken across the border to neighbouring countries. If you plan to travel between several African countries, we will need to ensure that you have the right supporting travel documentation, so it is best to discuss your proposed travel plans with one of our consultants before you hire a vehicle from us.
