If I could give Diederik and his business, Ivory 4×4 Hire, 10 stars I would…. I cannot speak highly enough about Diederik and his operation. If you are in the market for a 4×4/4-wheel drive vehicle for your self-drive African Safari, you really should look no further. I’m from the US, but have traveled fairly extensively in the bush in Southern Africa. I’ve rented many vehicles and have had all sorts of positive and not-so-positive experiences with 4×4 vehicles… I did a lot of research for this last trip and, after much analysis, settled on Diederik/Ivory for a number of reasons including: type of vehicle, type of camping gear (including dual roof tents), cost, and ease of communication with the company. I wanted to make sure our trip went as smoothly as possible because we were traveling with our two young kids. After 4 weeks, 5 countries, 8000+ kilometers, and 8000+ photos, my wife and I marveled about how we did not have even _one_ mishap along the way… No broken down vehicle, no equipment failure, not even a single flat tire! I attribute it all to how Diederik runs Ivory 4×4 and how well he maintains his vehicles. Plus, at one point while on the road I called Diederik (on a Sunday) thinking we might have a problem getting across a border. He answered immediately and was very helpful and always seemed to be available on his mobile. This kind of personal service is so invaluable and rarely encountered in the 4×4 hire world. So, again, I can’t speak highly enough of Ivory 4×4 and would unequivocally recommend Diederik and his company for any of your 4×4 vehicle needs in Southern Africa.
