  • Why rent a 4×4?
  • Many of the roads in Africa are not tarred and you require a vehicle that can handle these roads and keep you safe. No, the Yaris you want to rent will not make it! With going remote you will discover great scenery and experiences. The 4×4 vehicles used for a self drive provide good ground clearance so that you can view the scenery and animals from a higher point of view. Space, space and more space. You can pack and bring the camera bag along!

Our 4×4 rentals are easy to understand, no hidden costs and you can adjust your rental to suite your budget. There is an adventure for everyone ! An Admin Fee to cover the toll fees, washing of the 4×4, cross border documents and for extra drivers. A daily rate for the 4×4. Choose your insurance. Done, ready for your adventure.

To make planning easier, 4×4 Adventures Africa has two main branches, Johannesburg and Windhoek. There are no extra fees for 4×4 vehicles that moves between these cities. For any other start or end city I can assist but a one way fee will be applicable. View
